Arsenal made sure they kept in touch with league leaders Chelsea after a comfortable and well deservedly win at the Liberty Stadium, although the loss of Olivier Giroud to injury, did take the shine off.
The France star opened the scoring on 37 minutes, his fifth in as many games, before signalling to the bench because of a problem with his lower leg. Surprisingly, Giroud reappeared after the break, only to be withdrawn on the hour mark: "Olivier did well again and he was important for us," said Arsène Wenger. "He had an ankle injury after 30-35 minutes and got to 60 minutes." Struggling with his fitness post-Euro 2016, Giroud started his first Premier League game on December 26, and this setback will serve as a bitter blow for the 30-year-old. "I don't know how bad it is," the Arsenal manager went onto add. "He is being assessed by the doctor. But he's limping quite a lot. I hope it’s not too bad." Jan 14 - 4:09 PM
