Chelsea's Olivier Giroud determined to hold down first-team place

The France striker, who moved from Arsenal for £18 million (Dh91.75m) last month, impressed during Monday's 3-0 win against West Brom at Stamford Bridge, where he created the first of Eden Hazard's two goals before being substituted in the second half.

"I have to thank the fans because they showed me great support", he said after the game, as quoted by BBC Football.

Crucially for Chelsea ahead of a huge month on three fronts, Conte's forward options were replenished as Olivier Giroud was handed his full debut, while club record signing Alvaro Morata made his return as a second-half substitute after almost a month out with a back injury.

"For sure to feel this atmosphere around me is very important", added Conte. It is not easy to win the Champions League but we will go for everything.

John Terry may well not be a Chelsea player anymore, but he still appears to be keeping a watchful eye on goings-on at Stamford Bridge.

Alvaro Morata, who came off the bench for his first appearance in nearly a month, set up Hazard to cut inside and find a gap in the defense to fire Chelsea's third past Ben Foster in the 71st minute. Their best chance of the game followed after Moses' attempted header back to Thibaut Courtois fell dreadfully short. Much like in his debut against Watford, Giroud provided an excellent "refernce" point for the Chelsea attack, something that had been sorely lacking during Morata's absence. "I think he played very well with great personality and spirit". I know that people support us and I will try to pay them back on the pitch.

Alvaro Morata is back from injury to provide another boost but only makes the bench as he aims to return from his back trouble.

"We want to beat Hull to advance to the next round, then prepare for Barcelona and then United and City".

The second goal for Chelsea did not arrive until past the hour-mark and it came off the boots of Nigeria's Victor Moses. Chelsea's player of the season so far exchanged a fast one-two on the edge of the box with his new French team-mate before firing an electric low strike into the bottom corner leaving Foster with no chance.

Former Newcastle United target Daniel Sturridge limped out of West Bromwich Albion's defeat to Chelsea.
