After his scorpion kick and his late heroics against Bournemouth and Preston, it is no surprise that Olivier Giroud is your latest Vitality Player of the Month.

The France international opened 2017 in sensational fashion with his acrobatic goal against Crystal Palace on New Year's Day - voted your Goal of the Month - before continuing his fine form.

His rescued a point at Bournemouth with an injury-time equaliser, before firing in an 89th-minute winner against Preston in the FA Cup.

Giroud, who claimed 60.4 per cent of the votes cast, was the overwhelming winner with Alexis - who scored against Bournemouth, Swansea and Burnley - in second place and Alex Iwobi third.
