Olivier Giroud: Has started the season in impressive form

Olivier Giroud: Has started the season in impressive form

Arsene Wenger has left it late to make additions to his squad, but a number of fresh faces could be drafted in by 2nd September.

The Gunners have spent plenty of energy chasing a new frontman, with the likes of Wayne Rooney, Gonzalo Higuain, Luis Suarez and Karim Benzema having all been linked with moves to north London at one stage or another.

Giroud would be the man most under threat from arrivals, with Arsenal often working with a lone frontman.

The Frenchman has, however, netted three times in as many outings this season and is confident that he can nail down a starting berth regardless of who is drafted in alongside him.

Giroud said after netting in a 3-1 victory over Fulham on Saturday: "I'm on a good run, I feel really confident. I feel good in the games and I do the job on the pitch. No doubts, no more questions.

"If there is a new striker coming, it's good for the squad, and I try to give it up for the team, help the team to win. Nothing more."

He added: "I did well (at Fulham), like the team. I really wanted to help the team to win after the bad result against Aston Villa.

"We were really disappointed with that and we wanted to correct it and dictate the game. That's what we did, like in Fenerbahce, and we are really pleased with that.

"We really wanted to show that the squad is together. We want to give an answer together on the pitch, and we did that. We played really well and we scored three goals, and now we are really confident."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
