Arsenal ended their two-match losing streak in the Premier League after overcoming a spirited West Bromwich Albion side 1-0 at the Emirates Stadium on Boxing day.

West Brom’s well-rehearsed strategy stagnated the North London club in the first half as they failed to create any meaningful openings despite dominating position to a large extent. The match opened up slightly after the break, but the Baggies stood their ground until Giroud struck with a late header.

The French striker has found it difficult to break into the starting line-up since the beginning of the season due to his extended run at the Euro’s in the summer along with some injuries. The excellent form of teammate Alexis Sanchez down the middle, also played it’s part.

However after loosing back-to-back Premier League games, Wenger was forced to change his personnel up front starting Giroud and moving in-form Sanchez to the wings.

The Frenchman proved to be the difference today, scoring the crucial goal clinching all three points for the Gunners and saving Wenger and the fans from Christmas Blues. There were good chances which he didn’t take initially, but he did take the all important one.

Giroud deserves all the credit, especially considering his rough patch of form coming into this match.

Here are some of the reactions on Twitter:

Yes, it is

Well Said

How did he even manage to put that past the keeper?
