Olivier Giroud has had his fair share of critics during his time in English football but it’s fair to say he’s fought back this season, leading Arsenal valiantly in the last few matches having found his scoring boots.
This season he’s been a bit-part member of the squad, with Alexis Sanchez leading the line, but Giroud has battled back into the first-team in a case of deja vu, as he claimed his spot back from Theo Walcott last season in similar circumstances.
With nine goals in all competitions, Olivier Giroud has excelled and has scored some very important goals for the Gunners. Now, the stats have revealed he is the finest striker in England’s top-flight at this time.

Involved in a goal every sixty minutes on average, Olivier Giroud is a crucial player for Arsenal and his fine minutes to goal ratio sees him joined by Lucas Perez (67) and Alexis Sanchez (88).
With that, Arsenal have a wealth of reliable players and it’s a good omen for the Gunners in the months ahead.
