Giroud looking for Lampard’s Chelsea to challenge Liverpool & Man City for Premier League title

The Blues forward believes a new era at Stamford Bridge can deliver immediate success, despite the club working under a two-window transfer embargo

Olivier Giroud believes Chelsea are capable of challenging for the Premier League title in 2019-20, with a transfer embargo set to make no impact on Frank Lampard’s plans.

The new man at the Stamford Bridge helm has his hands tied when it comes to bringing fresh faces on board.

A two-window ban means a deal done for Christian Pulisic in January and the taking up of a permanent option on Mateo Kovacic will be the only moves made this summer.
