Iwobi plays no part as Giroud spares Arsenal blushes

  • Olivier Giroud was on target when Arsenal won 2-0 at Southampton back in May

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has hailed Olivier Giroud as one of the best strikers in the Premier League.

Giroud was brought on in the closing stages to provide Arsenal with more of a penalty-box presence against a Southampton side who were sinking ever deeper. They face Southampton at St Mary's on 10 December.

That was Giroud's 17th goal for Arsenal after coming off the bench, which equals former Manchester United frontman Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Premier League record for a single club. How can Arsene Wenger not see that?' After taking the game to the visitors and pressing high up the pitch in the opening period, Mauricio Pellegrini instructed his players to drop back and play on the counter-attack after the interval.

Last Saturday Arsenal lost 3-1 to United after giving away two simple goals in the first 11 minutes. However, despite the arrival of Alexandre Lacazette at Arsenal, and Alexis Sanchez being forced to stay, Giroud chose to stay and fight for his place.

Wenger said he was satisfied enough with the point Arsenal took given they had been behind for so long.

It took Olivier Giroud to save Arsenal's blushes in the 84th minute as he came off the bench to head home an equaliser.

Travolta says he found a partner in Edward Wilson, who has produced films like Woody Allen's "Cafe Society" and " Wonder Wheel ". Travolta then revealed that Lionsgate said "no" twice but eventually let it go after he begged them.

But France striker Alexandre Lacazette could not claim the goal his endeavours deserved and it was left to his compatriot Giroud - a man, like Austin not too well-versed in starting games this term - to avert a sixth Premier League loss of the season.

Charlie Austin's third-minute goal was the difference after an up-tempo, end-to-end first half.
