Olivier Giroud doubled Chelsea’s advantage over Malmo in the Europa League round of 32 first-leg with a gorgeous backheel from close-range.

Giroud will not have been short on cards this Valentine’s Day – he’s a good looking bloke. He’s now got a goal to mark his favourite day of the year, and the finish was almost as gorgeous as he is.

Ross Barkley drove through the heart of the midfield and played the ball out-wide to Willian. The Brazilian played the ball across the box and into the path of Giroud, who flicked it in with his heel.

Chelsea now have a healthy aggregate advantage.
