Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was delighted to see Christian Pulisic and Olivier Giroud combine in Tuesday’s 1-0 win over Norwich City.

Pulisic set-up Giroud to score the decisive goal with a brilliant cross which allowed the Frenchman to head the ball past Tim Krul.

Asked about the burgeoning partnership, Lampard said: “We clearly saw that with the goal and I was delighted with Christian’s movement to run behind on the little angle, because that’s what we weren’t doing in the early stages of the game, and then Oli will always be alive in the box to those sort of balls.

“If you’re playing Olivier Giroud you want to get balls in the box. You need to play to his strengths and he gets a really good goal.

“The link-up is good, but generally it could have been better. A lot of balls went astray for us today when normally we’re a bit slicker with the passing, but job done.”
