Monitor – Olivier Giroud

Filed under: Members - Posted by: Paul

Having started each of Arsenal’s last five league matches, there seems to be no question that Olivier Giroud is currently Arsene Wenger’s number one forward. While Theo Walcott and Lukas Podolski have both made claims for a central role, the Gunners boss is clearly determined to afford his compatriot regular game time and, with his confidence flourishing, Giroud is beginning to deliver:

A double against Fulham at the weekend was the first time the former Montpellier man has scored at the Emirates this season and post-match, Giroud revealed his self-belief never wavered, in spite of his scoring drought:

“I feel better and better. I’m confident about my qualities. I never give up. When I didn’t score at the beginning of the season I stayed confident and always worked on my mind and my game. It’s not a surprise for me [his good form]. I want to play a lot of good games like tonight to succeed [and] to win a lot of games with my new club. I have to score and continue [to do so].”

“All players will blank a few times during the season. When almost all do it in the same Gameweek, it is tough to take, but that's just the dark side of probability.”
