Olivier Giroud desperate to score at Liverpool

The Arsenal hitman Olivier Giroud has hit an amazing total of 99 goals for the Gunners since joining us just over 5 years ago, and he can’t think of a better place to get his 100th than at Anfield against Liverpool this afternoon.

“Honestly, I feel very proud of this number but I really want to reach the 100 goals as soon as possible,” Giroud said on “It could be nice even more, because when I signed for Arsenal, my second game was an away game in Anfield and I remember that the fans were singing ‘my song’, Hey Jude.

“It was a very special moment for me and it was the first time I heard the song, so I felt very proud and it was a privilege. It’s a special stadium and it’s going to be a tough and important game, so if I can help the team to win this game I will do it with great pleasure.

“It’s always special [to hear my song] because I didn’t expect a warm welcome like that. When I signed for Arsenal, even if I won the league with Montpellier, a lot of people didn’t know about Montpellier and that we were champions so I came and some of the fans didn’t even know me.

“I was just starting my international career with the French national team and it was the beginning of a nice story for me and it’s always a great feeling. Like, for example, against Leicester when I came on and scored the winner, it was maybe one of my best moments. I still believe that there will be more and more to come.”

No matter what you think of the Frenchman, and it is clear that many Gooners and pundits believe we can never win the title with Oli as our main striker, you cannot deny that he has a great habit of popping up with a goal when we most need it. I’m gonna predict that he will come on with 20 minutes to go when it is 1-1, and score the winner!

    That will be great if he can manage to do that but what’s more important if arsenal can snatch 3 point from Liverpool at an field today……arsenal to sell ox to Chelsea this week too bad,all this injury prone players are becoming traitors all the time after Wenger has back them during difficult time of their playing career…

    The biggest problem I have with our club is Wenger’s cavalier approach to solving our defensive problems. Even if Giroud is to score tomorrow, do we have the wherewithal to stop Liverpool at their home ground? It is easier for an Arsenal fan to get a bad vibe in what’s supposed to be a 50-50 encounter with a top team than to be hopeful of yielding at least a point because our defense seems always willing to commit a calamitous error first. Mourinho’s first priority was to get United’s defending in order, then moved on up to sharpen the attack. Meanwhile, Wenger just doesn’t seem to know how to deal with it – and now, it seems like it will become customary for teams to finish below us in one season only to leapfrog over the season(s) afterwards.

      Wenger has been trying to solve the defending problems with 3-4-2-1, but I am not sure whether it will work against Liverpool today. Because Liverpool will not be surprised with this formation anymore and they just faced Hoffenheim, that used 3-4-2-1 as well.

      As usual, Liverpool will attack with fast movements and quick counter-attacks. Arsenal could only win this by slowing down the tempo and lure them out of their area, to frustate them.

        The last place Liverpool want to be is in their own area so to suggest they need to be ‘lured out’ of it is ridiculous. It’s keeping them IN their area that’s the problem! Even they know their defence is rubbish – why do you think they were so desperate for V V Dyke – and they want the ball out of their area ASAP!

    Without Oliver i don’t think or imagine arsenal is a team for cup. The only problem in the team is Ozil ; in place of Ozil bring either of player like Coutinho, Chelsea Willian, Hazard. Also bring one best defender like Virgil van dijke and Sergio Ramos. Then you will see the best arsenal in History.

    Wenger must decide and go all out since the defense is shacky and he is busy selling Mustafi and Gabriel and not replacing. We have aging players in Carzola, Monreal and Konsienly and who is to say that they can just get finished in mid-season. Arsenal should score more frequently, score more early and score more goals. The squad is well placed for frontal domination.

    My personal team for the above would be:


    Ozil in the Central Midfield? Yes, we need to try him there and he will have three super great option running infrony of him to aim at and if he does not fit, we let him go and get Seri. We can replace with Welbeck and Walcott. For Ozil we have Ramsey and Even Elneny. Thats how Giroud and Lacazette will play together…
