Giroud looking to improve

Although satisfied with his tasty two-goal salvo against West Ham night, Olivier Giroud says that there’s more to come from him in an Arsenal shirt.

Given the watersheringham seal of approval by Robert Pires yesterday, the HFB responded in fine style, putting Arsenal ahead in the 47th minute and rounding off the scoring with the Gunners’ 5th just 10 minutes later.

He brought his goal tally for the season to 11, but he’s determined to add more to this total.

“It is good thing to reach this number,” he said, “but I want to keep going and score more goals. I know my team-mates very well, so I feel really good in games. I have scored 11 goals and I have nine assists but I know I can do more.

“It was important to win because Tottenham are on a good run. We have to concentrate on the Champions League places – it is our objective and we really want to get there. If we play like tonight from the kick-off, it will be much better for us.”

And the Arsenal manager has backed his three summer signings for their goalscoring exploits.

“It’s positive because we see the players like Giroud and Podolski and Cazorla, who were questioned at some stage, they have come in this season and are getting better.”

“That’s very good news,”said Wenger. “It means we have done well in the transfer market. That is always questioned.”

Arsenal, questioned about transfer market activity? That’s a new one on us.
