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."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.

f you want to take six points off Arsenal, then that's a great strike force. Can't imagine either of them showing much for the rest of the season though...
