The argument seems to be about Oliver Giroud’s goal outclassing Henrikh Mikhtaryan, just last week, the Armenian international was the toast of the media, but Giroud’s goal seem to have eclipsed him.
Our Frenchman scored a sublime ‘scorpion’ goal, and Petr cech has come out to back his teammate to win the Goal of the year award.
“First it’s a very important goal because we needed to break them down and we needed to score,” the goalkeeper told Arsenal Player. “When you score a goal of the year on the first day of the year, you put the bar really high!
“I always keep saying that he’s one of those players who you love to have in the team, because he’s a handful and he can score important goals. As we know, he scores important goals, no matter if he starts or if he comes off the bench. He’s always a threat.
“I thought we got control of the game, we got the goal that we needed and we played really well,” he added. “I thought we moved the ball really well, we created chances and it was the same in the second half. What was most important was that we stayed solid at the back and we didn’t concede.”
