The French forward played the full 90 minutes as Arsene Wenger’s men came from a goal down to beat the 10-man Foxes in front a jubilant crowd at Emirates Stadium.
Giroud set up Theo Walcott for Arsenal’s equaliser with a deft cushioned header and had a number of efforts saved by Kasper Schmeichel before Danny Welbeck’s stoppage-time winner in north London.
Carragher was asked for his thoughts on Giroud after the game on Twitter by one fan, and the former Liverpool defender revealed that he is a keen admirer of the France international.
The veteran defender tweeted:
@lNSlGNE Always liked Giroud underrated & great assist for Walcott goal.
