Olivier Giroud has enjoyed a return to form in recent weeks after initially finding himself behind Theo Walcott in the pecking order at Emirates Stadium.

The French striker netted his fifth top-flight game of the season as he nodded in the opener to give Arsenal the lead in their 2-1 win over Everton on Saturday night.

Giroud was restored to the starting line-up for Saturday’s clash after coming off the bench to help Arsenal seal a thrilling 2-0 win over Bayern Munich in the Champions League last week.

Despite only starting four of Arsenal’s 10 Premier League games this season, Giroud has already netted six goals in all competitions for the Gunners.
