Speaking in an interview with MilanTV, Oliver Giroud detailed his thoughts about facing his old club tomorrow in the Champions League at his old stomping ground.

"I think it’ll be a special game for the team because it’s a great Champions League match-up. It’s also personally for me, as I spent nine years in London playing for Arsenal and Chelsea so I expect it to be a great game."

"Chelsea have just one point so far, so they will play aggressively and in an energetic way, aiming for the win, so we expect a tough game."

For the 90 minutes he faces off against his old team, Olivier Giroud will be thinking only of punishing Chelsea and helping AC Milan, Chelsea will be hoping an old ally does not come back to be an unfortunate foe.
