Giroud, 32, opened the scoring just five minutes into the game, before completing a hat-trick in under 60 minutes – his first since 2016.

And the Frenchman also assisted Callum Hudson-Odoi as he fired the Blues five goals in front.

Giroud scored a perfect treble, scoring with his left-foot, right-foot and head – unlike Ronaldo, 34, on Tuesday night.

The Portuguese star netted three times to inspire Juventus' stunning comeback against Atletico Madrid, but scored two headers and a late penalty.
