He hasn’t had the best start to life as an Arsenal player and many have critcised his lack of goal-scoring, but Olivier Giroud believes that he is starting to feel a lot more settled since his summer move from French side Montpellier and has stated that he believes that ‘his own performances are improving’.
The French striker has netted just seven times since his arrival and although that is an ok return, we need a forward that needs to be double figures and scoring regularly which Giroud isn’t at their current moment in time.
Speaking to Sky Sports he 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.”
Though he works hard for the team and has contributed with a few assists, it is his goal-scoring that we need him to pick up on and we haven’t got time for him to settle in even more, as the club is in a mini crisis and we need all our players to actually perform like we expect them too.
So even though I am glad he is feeling better, words are not enough and he needs to show it on the pitch.
