Olivier Giroud believes Arsenal produced the right reaction in their goalless draw against Manchester United on Wednesday.

After Saturday's disappointing defeat to Liverpool, the Gunners put in a solid defensive display to keep their seventh straight clean sheet at home.

Giroud was disappointed Arsenal couldn't capitalise on late pressure in the second half but thinks the performance will give them confidence going into the FA Cup game against Liverpool on Sunday.

I think it's a good draw to be honest even if we could have scored at the end

"I think we had a good reaction after the bad result against Liverpool," the Frenchman told Arsenal Player. "I think it's a good draw to be honest even if we could have scored at the end. It was maybe just about our confidence.

"We did well in the first half especially but after we looked a bit tired. It's OK, we had a good reaction on the pitch and I think that's the most important thing even if we wanted to win this game.

"I'm confident for the remaining games and we'll know a bit more about our future after Liverpool and Bayern [Munich] because we want to play in every competition."
