Arsenal striker is EPL’s deadliest striker

Giroud is back to being the number one striker at Arsenal and has replied his critics with some impressive performances

 

It might be hard to take, but this is the truth, Olivier Giroud is the best striker right now in the English Premier League.

Coming into the season, Arsenal fans had no hope that their striker will be able to shot them to the title and their manager, Arsene Wenger seems to also think that at a time.

After a loss of form, Wenger chose to start Theo Walcott over Giroud but the French striker gradually won back his spot.

With Walcott now injured, Giroud is back to being the number one striker at Arsenal and has replied his critics with some impressive performances.

So far this season, Giroud has scored six goals and providing a clinical focal point for Wenger's team.

Giroud has the best minute-per-goal ratio of any striker in the league, he has scored more headed goals (15) more than any other striker since he made his debut in England in 2012.

In 11 games this season, Giroud has had a total of 26 shots, created eight chances and six goals with a conversion rate of 23%.
