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 …
