Arsenal super Sub Olivier Giroud says he is unperturbed by playing less having lost his starting role to Theo Walcott in recent weeks on the domestic front.
Arsenal capped off an excellent week with a 2-1 home victory over Everton that that saw them move to the top of the Premier League.
And Giroud who followed up his goal in Tuesday’s Champions League win over Bayern Munich by heading the Gunners in front after 36 minutes of Saturday night’s Emirates Stadium encounter in his first league start in two months says the team’s performance comes first and not if he is starting or not.
“The main thing is that the team is doing well. That’s the best thing for me. As long as we are winning, I am pleased with that and I try to bring something else to the team.
“We have a different profile with Theo, and a good understanding with each of us up front, so it is okay. Before, Theo was in good form and now it is me, so we need to both contribute to the big matches.”
Giroud has five goals in his last four games in all competitions for club and country, while Walcott has three goals and three assists across his last six matches for England and Arsenal.
