With his hat-trick against Kyiv, Giroud became the over top scorer in the Europa League with nine goals as Chelsea raced into the quarter-finals with a 5-0 win in Ukraine and an 8-0 aggregate scoreline. The French forward has been handed limited playing time in the Premier League with the arrival of Gonzalo Higuain on loan from Juventus.

Speaking in a press conference after the Kyiv thumping, Sarri insisted that Giroud is still an important player for the club, "Very, very good. But, in the last period, every time he has been on the pitch, he was able to play really very well. He's scored nine goals in this competition. As you know very well, Olivier for us is a very important player. I'm really very happy for him, and am really very happy with him."
