The Frenchman scored Chelsea's first goal on the stroke of half-time in the Blues' 5-3 defeat to the Reds at Anfield.

Overall, Giroud has now scored 85 goals in the Premier League – one more than Ronaldo during his time at Manchester United.

The 33-year-old has scored 12 of his 85 EPL strikes since joining Chelsea in January 2018, while he also netted 73 times during his time at Arsenal.

He needed 237 appearances to beat Ronaldo's tally, while the Portuguese superstar scored his 84 strikes in 196 matches for United.

Giroud has scored seven Premier League goals so far in this campaign, with five of them coming since the league's restart.

The result, though, saw Chelsea drop to fourth place behind Manchester United, meaning the Blues need to collect one more point to secure qualification for next season's UEFA Champions League.
