Olivier Giroud's scoring drought for Arsenal continues.
Despite the Gunners' win, Olivier Giroud could not snap his goalless streak, starting the match but failing to net.
Giroud has struggled badly in the second half of the season, losing his place along with Theo Walcott, with Danny Welbeck frequently preferred since his return from injury.
The win over West Brom was satisfactory, but did little to inspire excitement among fans who have been frustrated by their league title challenge fading. They currently sit 10 points behind Leicester City.
Giroud had four attempts at goal, two of which were on target, and to his credit, he created two chances.
He has now gone through 13 consecutive league games without a goal, and it is hard to imagine Arsenal not signing a striker in the summer. He has a record of 12 goals in 34 league games.
Here is a look at how fans responded on Twitter to his performance...
Giroud so poor tonight. Real chance to vent his frustration of being dropped in the past few months. Really poor season on his behalf #AFC— Matt Sheppard (@matt_sheppard4) April 21, 2016
Giroud has played 13 premier league games without a goal.Ridiculous player. #afc— Mesut ozil (@bamikashy) April 21, 2016
Giroud was poor tonight. His place is on the bench. Welbeck or Theo should be starting the games! #afc— Chris #Revival (@chrisMusic88) April 21, 2016
Giroud has done absolutely nothing in this game, his best moment was heading a free kick away. Says it all. World class striker needed. #AFC— TBE (@TheBrand1886) April 21, 2016
