Giroud scored a 14th-minute winner as the Gunners beat West Brom 1-0 in a game which lost some of its edge after Everton's defeat to Manchester City on Saturday ensured Arsenal would finish fourth in the table.

Szczesny said: "We know that we had nothing to play for really but we really wanted to win for our fans and sign off with a victory and get in a good mood before the FA Cup final so I thought it was a good day."

Giroud, who joined Arsenal from Montpellier for £13million in June 2012, has now scored 22 goals in his second season with the club and is delighted with his form.

He said: "I think I have improved myself in comparison with the first season and, for sure, with my team-mates, we have a really good understanding on the pitch.

"I take a lot of pleasure on the pitch and I think we can recognise it. I love the Arsenal way to play. I love our game so hopefully we will have some nice days in front of us."

Szczesny also praised Giroud, adding: "I think he is being very humble. But I think he has improved massively for us this season.

"Not only does he score goals, but he works very hard for the team and his hold-up play is very good. So he keeps improving and hopefully next season he will be even better for us."

e doesn't need a caoch. He needs a bus. A bloody big one, that he can park across the goal line. And when he gets one, he can do us a favour and let us know where we can buy one from as well.
