Arsenal fans have been split down the middle this week, with some supporting Olivier Giroud whilst others stated he is still not good enough, despite scoring his ninth goal in 13 appearances in all competitions yesterday.
Giroud scored the opening goal against Everton yesterday, as he bounced back from a horrific midweek performance against Monaco. However, he was guilty of misses a few chances and some are still not convinced he is the player to take Arsenal forward.
There’s no denying that Giroud’s record this season has been very good but some raise a good point- what if he scored those easier chances? Golden boot?
Giroud and Özil have been our most consistent Premier League performers this season yet they are both heavily criticised.

This weekend, Sergio Aguero: no goals. Olivier Giroud: one goal. Media narrative?

Why is nobody annoyed that Giroud is starting? Man disgraced the club on Wednesday.

Striker’s are meant to finish. What is this holding up rubbish? Great that Giroud can do it, but striker’s have to be able to shoot!

Giroud you’re still rubbish.

Giroud would have an amazing goal record if he scored the easy chances. It’s why we need better.

We saw both sides of Giroud today. Amazing balance and awareness for first goal. Then missing a sitter, the kind he’s known for to finish.

Giroud gets in such amazing areas at times. He can become one of the best strikers in the league if he improves his consistency.
