Giroud feeling confident

Cape Town - Olivier Giroud says he is full of confidence after scoring seven times in his last 10 appearances.
The French striker missed three months of the season with a broken fibula but has shone since returning at the end of November and he believes Arsenal’s wealth of attacking options has helped him to flourish.
“I’ve scored seven goals in my last 10 appearances, so it’s a good stat for me,” Giroud told Arsenal Player.
“I feel good and my confidence is high. I want to help the team to win more games and to achieve our targets.
“We have plenty of solutions up front. We are all different, so it’s nice.
“We can find each other really well on the pitch and what’s most important is to keep this movement and this variation in the game.
“It’s a pleasure to play with the boys and I think we are really strong offensively. [We need to] do a great job together defensively as a unit, like we showed at Manchester City, it’s a good idea to do it again and again, especially against big teams.
“We need to be focused on our defensive game, because we know that up front we are always going to create chances to score.”
Crystal Palace will be out to stop Giroud and his Arsenal teammates on Sunday. The match at Selhurst Park kicks off at 17:00.
