Olivier Giroud has been up and down since returning from injury but was definitely "up" again scoring a brace against Newcastle on Saturday.
The France international showed why he can be such a valuable player when he is on his game. His towering header for Arsenal's opening goal was a prototypical center forward's goal. His second goal showed off his deft touch as he directed a near-post Hector Bellerin cross. Throw in the sort of ability he showed with his late goal from outside the box against Manchester United and his ability to link attacking moves together and he can be a devastating force. He will likely never be in the Robin van Persie/Sergio Aguero class of forwards who can win a game by themselves but he's certainly an extremely valuable starter when healthy and in form.
