With Theo Walcott back with an FA Cup hat trick, Olivier Giroud's status as a starter is very much in question.
Olivier Giroud has been a fantastic change of pace late in matches for Arsenal for most of the season. Theo Walcott's injury saw the big Frenchman moved into the starting line-up with Alexis Sanchez reverting to a wide attacking position. With Walcott resuming his goal-scoring ways and Danny Welbeck also back Arsene Wenger's next move with his attacking group is very much up in the air. Giroud, who was very productive as a starter, could retain his spot or he could go back to the bench in favor of Walcott plus Welbeck/Iwobi/Oxlade-Chamberlain on the flanks with Alexis in the middle. Fantasy managers will have to exercise caution with Griroud after weeks of knowing he was going to start. Jan 31 - 10:45 AM
