After the umitigated disaster of the Champions League defeat, Arsenal will certainly be making some changes to the starting line up for the visit of Everton on Sunday. Arsene Wenger admitted as much in his pre-match press conference earlier today and the Frenchman knows it is vital for the Gunners to get right back on track in the bread and butter of the Premier League.
But although some angry fans would suggest that Wenger should make 11 changes after the terrible performances all over the pitch on Wednesday, that will not happen and Olivier Giroud is one of the players I believe the boss will stick with.
Danny Welbeck is the only real option at centre forward but I think that he is clearly second choice to Giroud at the minute. Wenger admitted that Giroud had a shocker but he also backed his striker and we should not forget that up until the Monaco game, Giroud had been in sparkling form.
Even on Wednesday he kept getting into position to score, it was just a shame he had forgotten his shooting boots. The fact is that Arsenal play better with Giroud leading the line. Plus he needs to get a goal quickly to put that performance behind him. Let´s not kill the man for one bad game.
