Olivier Giroud has sputtered down the stretch as Arsenal have struggled to score over their past four matches.
The France international was on fire from mid-February through early April but his production seems to have hit something of a wall. Whether he is, as some commentators have posited, just not an elite talent or whether he is struggling after playing a lot of minutes consecutively without a rest isn't clear. It is also possible that he has just been unlucky in recent weeks. A flicked attempt against Sunderland forced a strong save while a near-post run resulted in a good shot into the side netting rather than into the net. The bounces and inches were with him when he was scoring 10 goals in 10 matches across all competitions for Arsenal. They have not been with him as he has gone scoreless in seven Premier League starts since then. With Arsenal essentially guaranteed third place and Giroud probably in need of a rest, it wouldn't be shocking to see him rotated for the finale against West Brom on Sunday. May 21 - 3:47 PM
