Arsenal fans were treated to a terrific performance from striker Olivier Giroud yesterday, as the Frenchman scored both goals in a 2-0 FA Cup victory against Middlesbrough at the Emirates.

Giroud’s first goal was a brilliant team effort, which resulted in every player on the field touching the ball before the Frenchman fired home the opener. His second, however, was sheer magic as he executed a magnificent volley from a corner to double the lead.

That left Giroud with seven goals and four assists in 11 FA Cup matches and put the Gunners into the quarter-finals, which means they are now just one game away from returning to the stadium where they ended their nine-year trophy drought in May.
