Arsenal are yet within touching distance with Premier League leaders Chelsea and they cruised passed Bournemouth 3-1 yesterday.
The Gunner were yet with Santi Cazorla, Hector Bellerin and Lucas Perez, who are the latest injured players but it seems Giroud has now been sidelined with a hamstring tear he picked up in yesterday’s game.
Despite scoring against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Wednesday, the France international started on the bench for Sunday’s fixture at the Emirates Stadium.
He was used as a substitute and he gave Alexis An assist but he is now a doubt for our EFL Cup clash against Southampton on Wednesday.
Speaking after the match, Wenger said: ‘The only worry we have is Giroud,’ said Wenger.
‘He looked to touch his hamstring. We have to see how deep the damage is. He told me on his first movement he felt a twinge.’
