Olivier Giroud score delighted to have scored his first goal for Chelsea

Olivier Giroud said that "it was important" for him to open his Chelsea account after the Frenchman scored in his new team's 4-0 win over Hull City on Friday night.
Willian netted twice, while Pedro was also on the scoresheet as Chelsea booked their spot in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup with a four-goal success against the Championship side.
Giroud's first Chelsea goal came three minutes before the end of the first period, and the January signing from Arsenal has admitted that he was "relieved" to register for the Blues in his third appearance.
"I was waiting for it. I had a couple of chances in previous games. It was important for me to score my first goal. It's relieved me a little bit," Giroud told BT Sport.
"We can see the team had a good team cohesion. It was important to bounce back after some disappointing results. This confidence is very important to carry on like that. We need momentum. Everything is going in the right way. We're very pleased
with our last two games so let's carry on."
Chelsea will welcome Barcelona to Stamford Bridge for the first leg of their last-16 tie in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
