When World Cup winner Olivier Giroud isn't banging in the goals for Chelsea, he's making sure he's on top of the latest fashion trends.

The Frenchman always likes to make sure he's looking at his best both on and off the pitch, and as part of their quest to help fans connect with the stars of their favourite club, Three gave influencer Josh Denzel the chance to sit down with Giroud to discuss all things fashion - with a quick game of 'Drip or Skip'.

Giroud, who admits that David Beckham is one of his biggest fashion idols in the football world, was all too eager to dish the dirt on the styles of some of his fellow Chelsea team-mates.

He showed some love to strike partner Tammy Abraham, although Giroud did encourage the youngster to 'get in the gym more' to help fill out his t-shirt.

However, karma soon came back around as Josh took Giroud out on to the Stamford Bridge turf to see a picture of the Frenchman in his Arsenal days, and Giroud clearly wasn't impressed to see a clean-shaven version of himself sporting a deep V-neck and some bright shorts.

"At this time, I wasn't doing many press-ups either!" he laughs. "It was five years ago! I didn't have a beard!"

It's not good enough for a man of Giroud's high standards, and he was equally as unimpressed with some of the outfits worn by team-mates Christian Pulisic and Reece James, the latter of whom he praised for doing away with his 'monk' haircut in recent years.

Nobody is safe from Giroud's glamorous eye, and not even manager Frank Lampard, whose style during his playing days gets a comprehensive thumbs down from the striker.

While Lampard's questionable fit doesn't impress Giroud, Josh manages to win the France international over with some of his favourite outfits, but his 'flashy' choice of shirt for the Monaco Grand Prix could use a little bit of work.

Three will continue giving influencers the chance to connect with their favourite Chelsea stars over the coming weeks, so stay tuned for the next episode of Connect With.
