Giroud unfazed by lack of game-time

Olivier Giroud has admitted that his lack of playing time at Arsenal this season is not a cause of worry for him.

The forward has spent just 12 minutes on the pitch in the Gunners' opening games after being given an extended break following the part he played in France's run to the Euro 2016 final.

However, while his national team-mate Laurent Koscielny and Germany's Mesut Ozil were also given extended breaks after the Euros, both have returned to the starting line-up with Giroud the odd one out.

But Giroud is not reading too much into it, even with Lucas Perez's £17m arrival from Deportivo la Coruna increasing competition for places up front.

“My club situation? I’m not worried, I came back very late from the Euros,” he said.

“It was normal to throw me in gradually. There is no problem on that side.”
