GIROUD RULED OUT
Olivier Giroud broke his bone during Arsenal’s 2-2 draw against Everton and this injury will be leaving the Frenchman out of action and unable to play for up to 4-5 months according to the medical staff of Arsenal.
The French attacker joins the list of injured players at the Emirates Stadium along with Theo Walcott who is entering the final stages of his recovery but Walcott has revealed his support concerning Giroud, as he is willing to help out his teammate however he can.
"I've been through a long injury myself now so I've said to him. If there's anything down the line you need to talk to me about from the rehab side of it, from the family side, anything, I'm there for you. I'm just a phone call away and he comes in anyway in the afternoons so I'm always there to see him. He's a very good athlete and he can be even stronger when he comes back from this, and that's what I said, which he appreciated. He's a great guy." Walcott told the media.
In this new season of the Premier League, it was expected that Olivier Giroud was going to play a huge role for Arsenal as they are aiming to snatch their spot into the top spots of the Premier League.
During the season of 2013-14, Arsenal was located at the top of the Premier League for a significantly long period of time as the team of Arsene Wenger was making a number of impressive performances and made a genuine charge for the league title but things started to slowly slip away from them after some of the main stars of the squad were getting injured.
Arsene Wenger is hoping that his squad does not suffer from the same incident and this is why Arsenal signed a number of players during the summer transfer window as Wenger wants to keep his options open and have plenty of replacements in case if sudden injuries start popping around.
