Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud says that he wants to repay the faith shown in him by manager Antonio Conte.

Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has said that he wants to repay the faith shown in him by manager Antonio Conte.

Giroud, who made his first start for the Blues in a 3-0 win over West Bromwich Albion earlier this week, netted his first goal for the club in Friday evening's 4-0 FA Cup rout of Hull City.

French forward Giroud told BT Sport that he is happy to be contributing to Chelsea's "big machine".

"Of course us strikers, they need a real human relationship with the coach," the 31-year-old said. "It's nice to have the confidence of the coach, of the staff, and I just want to give it back.

"I feel like the last two opportunities [that I've been given], I've brought my small thing to the big machine, Chelsea."

Giroud signed for Chelsea from London rivals Arsenal for £18m on deadline day in January.
