Olivier Giroud: Striker has scored seven goals for Arsenal since arriving from M

The 26-year-old striker has netted seven goals since arriving from Montpellier in a £13m deal during the summer.

Although his most recent strike came against Tottenham in mid-November, the Frenchman is feeling confident and upbeat about his and Arsenal's immediate future.

Giroud said: "It has been an interesting few months but now I want to do more.

"I am an Arsenal player and rightly expectations are high. I am trying to do what the boss asks of me, to put pressure on defenders and to improve on protecting and holding the ball.

"We put a lot of good crosses in, so it is important that I get on the end of them and score.

"I am feeling better and better in this team all the time. I know my team-mates now and things are more automated on the pitch, which makes things easier for me."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
