If people don’t think we can finish first it is not my problem

And although Manchester City remain the favourites to lift the trophy this season, Giroud is keen for the Gunners to do their talking on the pitch.

“Maybe we are not favourites for the title but we have been first still for a long time and it’s the 25th game [coming up],” Giroud told Arsenal Player.

“We have to show people that we want to answer [our critics] on the pitch and nothing more. That is the most important [thing] for us, is the reality of the pitch.

“After that, if people don’t think we can finish first it is not my problem, but I know we have a good chance to win the league.”
