Can a Fit Olivier Giroud Get Into Arsenal’s Starting Eleven?

When asked before the Bournemouth game about Giroud’s chance of starting on Saturday, Arsene Wenger gave a reply straight from the Football Manager handbook. A coy Wenger said “It’s just game by game, I make the decision on the next game…I thought in this game [against PSG] his physical presence could give them problems at the back…We need everyone on board and it’s just the next game that matters.” In the two games that Arsenal had played before that question …

Why Are EPL Strikers Out of Fashion This Season?

Strikers. The  Glamour Boys. The Hansel's and Derek Zoolanders of the football world. The match winners. All hopes of glory rested squarely on their shoulders. Not anymore.

A Statistical-Strategic Approach to Understanding Olivier Giroud's Game

The start to this season has not been the one Arsenal expected. At a time when competitors have hit the ground running, Arsenal have made a slow start. While they did sign Lucas Pérez from Deportivo La Coruna; Olivier Giroud, Arsenal’s main striker for the last four seasons, is expected to continue in his role as the leader of the striking contingent. Arguably, no striker divides opinion like the Frenchman. He has been booed by his own fans and criticism …
Who Would Fit Arsenal Better - Mauro Icardi or Alexandre Lacazette?

Who Would Fit Arsenal Better - Mauro Icardi or Alexandre Lacazette?

Arsenal have been struggling with signing top-class strikers ever since the days of Thierry Henry, and although RvP seemed like the answer, he was signed on to play at Manchester United. This season, Wenger seems keen on changing that, and it is about time. He made a relentless pursuit of Jamie Vardy, but the striker chose to stay back at Leicester City. Undaunted, Wenger has been making moves for both Mauro Icardi and Alexandre Lacazette. Here’s taking a look at which …
Arsenal Injuries: Who Could Miss The First Game?

Arsenal Injuries: Who Could Miss The First Game?

Arsenal and Arsene Wenger have been the recipient of a lot of bad luck as they seem to be facing some issue or the other, every single season. However, with their opening game against Liverpool, the Gunners appear to be face-to-face with a problem already. Wenger is likely to find himself without some regular players for the opening of the season, including his top two forwards. That will leave Theo Walcott as the only option up front, unless Wenger manages …
