Olivier Giroud has promised Arsenal fans that he will return to top form in the closing stages of the season.

The France international has struggled to make an impact for the north Londoners in recent weeks and has only managed one goal in his last seven games.

I thought about it, assessed myself and now I’m back to work

But although the 27-year-old acknowledges that he hasn’t been at his best of late, the striker is determined to find form as the Gunners look to break back into the top four.

“Against Everton, it’s true that I wasn’t on my game,” Giroud told L’Equipe.

“That can happen in a season. I thought about it, assessed myself and now I’m back to work.”

Arsenal are currently fifth in the Premier League table heading into Tuesday night’s clash against West Ham at Emirates Stadium.

And Giroud admits that Arsene Wenger’s side face a fight to qualify for next season’s Champions League.

“There are six finals ahead of us, five matches in the league and the FA Cup final,” he continued. “If we play without errors in the league, we’ll qualify for the Champions League.”
