Both Olivier Giroud and Alexis Sanchez scored in Arsenal’s 4-1 demolition of Liverpool this weekend, which takes their respective totals to 18 for Giroud (despite missing many months out injured) and 20 for the sublime Chilean hitman.

The little Spaniard Santi Cazorla turned 30 last week, but is still as sprightly as he was 10 years ago if not even fitter. He has had an award winning December and it has also been revealed that he played 50 games for Arsenal in 2014, more than any of his younger (and more injury-prone) team-mates.
