Chelsea beat Sevilla at Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium in the UEFA Champions League courtesy of
four goals by Olivier Giroud, and in the process became only the second English team to win at Seville.
The Blues were thoroughly impressive despite ringing in the changes and will finish top of Group E
regardless of what happens on the final matchday in the group stages.
Frank Lampard had hinted before the game that he was going to give some of the fringe players an opportunity,
and he did just that as he made a whopping nine changes to the team that drew against Tottenham Hotspur in
the Premier League on Sunday.
An early goal by Olivier Giroud in the eighth minute of the game helped calm the nerves, and even though
Sevilla passed it around comfortably, they rarely threatened the Chelsea goal. The second half saw Chelsea be a
bit more aggressive as they took the game to Sevilla and pressed the Spaniards high up the pitch to pose
Giroud scored thrice in 30 second half minutes to guarantee the points in what eventually turned out to be a
spectacular display by Chelsea.
