Chelsea forward Olivier Giroud has left Selhurst Park on crutches following the Blues' win over Crystal Palace.

N'Golo Kante got the only goal of the game to cement Chelsea's place in the top four.

Giroud was given the nod ahead of Alvaro Morata to start on Sunday afternoon, and he found the back of the net twice.

This could lead to the Blues needing a new forward in January with Alvaro Morata also possibly set to leave the club.
