OLIVIER GIROUD RECORD IN COMPETITIVE GAMES FOR ARSENAL
Speaking ahead of the trip to Anfield, Giroud reflects on his journey so far and recalls why the game against Liverpool triggers emotion in him and why he would love to score his 100th goal for Arsenal in all competition.
It could be nice even more, because when I signed for Arsenal, my second game was an away game in Anfield and I remember that the fans were singing ‘my song’, Hey Jude.
It was a very special moment for me and it was the first time I heard the song, so I felt very proud and it was a privilege. It’s a special stadium and it’s going to be a tough and important game, so if I can help the team to win this game I will do it with great pleasure.
Giroud was the top scorer in Ligue 1 helping Montpellier to the French League in the process. In recent months, he has helped dig Arsenal out of holes with series of important late goals from the bench.
