Giroud injury worry after Everton heroics


Olivier Giroud might have been Arsenal’s equalising hero this afternoon, but the striker is the latest injury worry with Arsene Wenger worried that the Frenchman might have done himself some serious damage late in the game.

Blocking a clearance from Sylvain Distin, Giroud seemed to twist his ankle, and limped badly for what remained of the game.

Speaking to Sky afterwards, the Arsenal manager said, “It’s a stretched ankle… at the moment it doesn’t look too good.”

It would be a blow for the Gunners ahead of Wednesday’s crucial Champions League qualifier against Besiktas. However, Wenger was happy with the point against the Toffees under difficult circumstances.

“I think it is a strong point because we were 2-0 down,” he said. “It’s a good & deserved point.”
