Olivier Giroud in Great Form
Giroud has been in excellent form, scoring 12 goals in the Premier League and 5 goals in 5 Champions League matches. The doubters forget the strength and precision that he has gained since we signed him in 2012. Having lost his place to Walcott earlier this season, he has fought back and earned a starting role through form. Whether you appreciate Olivier as a pure striker or not, our main tactical formation involves his link-up and holding play while providing an outlet for width and crosses.
With that in mind, who could we really buy and trust to fit into the team with better form? My vote is for the Frenchman and Theo as an alternate (or vice versa depending on the oppostion). Follow the links below to some excellent commentary and discussion on Giroud’s recent form:
