I will be a West Ham Fan are the words of Arsenal Striker Olivier Giroud and Wenger after The Gunner’s comfortable smashed Stoke City in their own ground bet365 stadium four goals to one.
Giroud opened the scoring at the 42nd minute with his left footed shot assisted by Hector Bellerín, Alexis Sanchez assisted Mesut Ozil doubled the lead, before Peter Crouch with God’s hand scored his 9th goal against the London side.
Meanwhile Sanchez himself as injured as he looked, stretched the Gunner’s Lead at the 79th minute with a shot from within the right side of the box to the bottom left corner before being substituted.
Aaron Ramsey who came in for the Chilean forward, with a lot of effort crossed well for Giroud to complete his brace changing figures on the score board to 1 – 4, obviously in favour of the visitors.
The victory distinctively shows the zeal Arsenal has brought into making sure top four finish is compulsory, seated with one point behind Liverpool which will play West Ham later today.
Arsenal Striker and Manager Giroud and Wenger speaking to Sky Sports in post-match interview stated, they support West Ham. In their own words this is what they had to say;
“Obviously we have to do the job. We have to focus on our games but to be honest with you I will be a big fan of West Ham tomorrow! They have all my support” Giroud
“West Ham have all my support against Liverpool. We have to do the job first and see what happens, we’ll keep fighting until the end.” Wenger
Arsenal hopes Liverpool Loses today, so that the Champions League doors remain open although thinner than the eye of the needle because a draw or defeat for the kops will still position them a head of Arsenal by a point or two.
