The Gunners have under-performed in their last four league fixtures but they head into today’s contest with an opportunity to move into third place in the standings.
Remember Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s scorpion kick from Boxing Day? Well Giroud has just raised the stakes big time. It’s an absolutely sensational goal from the forward, who produces an outrageous volley with his heel from 14 yards with the ball hitting the crossbar and going into the net. Sanchez provided the assist and it’s a goal which will be replayed time and time again.
GOAL! Arsenal 1-0 Crystal Palace (Giroud)
