Olivier Giroud has scored eight times from his last nine shots on target after heading a late equaliser for us at Old Trafford.
Here’s what Arsene Wenger had to say about Olivier - and our other effective substitutes - after Saturday’s game:
on Olivier Giroud and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain…The two substitutes did well. We have done that so many times this season and it shows that there is something in this squad which is remarkable. It’s great unity, great resilience and a never-give-up attitude. We know that we can do better going forward.
on Giroud fighting for his place…I consider him to be a regular player. He had a long holiday [after the Euros], after that he was injured and now he’s just coming back for a few games. It’s true that in the past two games he has been a bit frustrated but that’s normal because he’s ready to go again. The solution of Alexis up front has worked well and I have two options at the moment. Olivier Giroud is in both options because Alexis can play on the flank. Olivier can only play through the middle, so I can sometimes marry the two together.
More polls coming soon!
