Cape Town - Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante has voiced his support for striker Olivier Giroud and believes he will soon find his goal-scoring form at the club.

Giroud joined the Blues from Arsenal in January but is yet to score in the Premier League after five appearances. He did, however, net his first Chelsea goal in the FA Cup and has provided three assists in all competitions.

Kante has backed his French compatriot to score his first league goal for Chelsea, and perhaps even against his old north London rivals Tottenham on April 1. In nine Premier League appearances against Spurs, Giroud has scored two goals.

"We know Olivier is a goalscorer," Kante said, as quoted by the Daily Star.

"He has scored many goals already in the Premier League for Arsenal and he has still not played that many games for Chelsea.

"Even last season he got a lot of goals and he wasn’t starting all the matches for Arsenal.

"We are not worried that he will soon start getting goals for Chelsea in the Premier League, and he should not be worried either.

"They will come – and maybe against Tottenham next weekend. Hopefully he will score, and we can win that game."

Kick-off is at 17:00 (SA time).
