January signing Olivier Giroud is becoming a popular player at Stamford Bridge.
Antonio Conte was hellbent on drafting in a target man in January, with Chelsea eventually snapping up Giroud from Arsenal after the likes of Ashley Barnes and Peter Crouch, to name but a few, were linked with a surprising move.
He's only bagged the solitary goal since his move but the Chelsea faithfuls are beginning to like him ahead of summer signing Alvaro Morata.
The Spaniard was reduced to a role off the bench on Saturday against Crystal Palace in the Premier League.
And as Chelsea gear up for a huge European clash versus Barcelona, fans are calling for Giroud to start ahead of Morata.
Alvaro Morata on for Olivier Giroud.
A really very good performance from Olivier Giroud. Disappointed for him, he really deserved a Goal. A proper Center Forward's display from the Frenchman. Hoping he gets to start against Barcelona. #CFC #CHECRY

No false 9 against Barcelona please. Hazard, Willian and Giroud

Conte takes his charges to Spain, with the tie evenly poised at one-a-piece.
And it appear he has a selection headache on his hands.
Giroud or Morata? Who should spearhead the attack at the Camp Nou on Wednesday? Let us know.
