Ian Wright on his biggest problem with Arsenal's Olivier Giroud

The Frenchman bagged two goals in Arsenal's 3-3 draw with Liverpool.

Speaking to BT Sport, Ian Wright has shared the biggest problem he has with Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud.

The striker put in another top performance on Wednesday evening, as he bagged two of his side’s three goals in the 3-3 draw with Liverpool.

The striker has been in fine form for the Gunners all season, with him now having scored 12 goals in 21 Premier League appearances so far.

His form has left many debating whether he is world class, while there is equal debate about whether he is good enough to lead the Gunners to the title this season.

Wright insists that he is good enough to do the latter, but says his biggest problem with him is whether he can slog it out with defenders in tough games.

“My only problem with Olivier Giroud is if he can dig in and slug it out with defenders who want to batter him,” he told BT Sport.

“But he showed that he can [against Liverpool], and if he does that with Ozil in the form he’s in and Sanchez to come back, of course [he’s good enough] because he scores goals.”

Manager Arsene Wenger will now be hoping the Frenchman can continue this kind of form for the rest of the season as his side eye a title challenge.

He was heavily criticised in the summer for failing to sign a world-class striker, with them being the only side in Europe’s top five leagues not to sign an outfield player.

So far that has been justified, with Olivier Giroud impressing upfront, and Wenger will be hoping it stays that way for the rest of the campaign.
