Le Saux insists Giroud not an ideal Chelsea striker

Former Chelsea fullback Graeme Le Saux doesn't rate Olivier Giroud as an ideal Blues striker.

The 34-year-old netted his third goal in his last four games for the Blues, during a 1-1 draw with Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge.

But Le Saux says: "It's a bit of a conundrum for Frank because Giroud will deliver this sort of level in the box.

"He got the most striker's instinct for Chelsea and he has earned a start for the next game.

"But I don't think he's exactly the striker they want in terms of pace and power that you would expect for a Chelsea striker."
