Olivier Giroud equalises for Arsenal with his first goal in 16 league matches


Out-of-form striker Olivier Giroud has delivered the goods for Arsenal at the best possible time, according to Twitter.

The Gunners were a goal down at Manchester City thanks to a Sergio Aguero strike on eight minutes when the Frenchman headed home two minutes later.

But the goals at either end were a tale of the two strikers' seasons.

Giroud hadn't scored in the Premier League since January - a whopping 16 games - before beating Joe Hart.

Aguero's goal meanwhile was his sixth in six Premier League games, his longest ever run in the competition.

He's also still in with a chance of winning the golden boot, although Leicester's Jamie Vardy and Tottenham's Harry Kane are ahead of him.
