Giroud opened the scoring in Sunday's 2-0 victory over Everton.

Giroud only found the target on one of his six shots - after an embarrassing 0-for-6 showing in the midweek loss to Monaco in the Champions League - but at least the on-mark strike found the back of the goal. He now totes nine goals in 16 Premier League appearances this season.

Olivier Giroud: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Giroud scored just before halftime during Arsenal's 2-1 victory at Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Giroud has now compiled five goals and three assists over his six starts across all competitions. In doing so, the Frenchman has reached 10 total goals on the campaign, including eight in 15 league matches. As the lynchpin atop Arsenal's attack, Giroud carries fine form into the Gunners' upcoming fixtures.

Giroud is available off the bench for Arsenal's Premier League match against Leicester City on Tuesday.

Interestingly, Danny Welbeck is also on the bench for the Gunners, who will have Theo Walcott and Alexis Sanchez leading the attack against one of the worst sides in the Prem.

Giroud recorded an assist on Arsenal's lone goal in Saturday's 2-1 loss to Tottenham.

Giroud's assist came after the Frenchman misfired an apparent shot that fell nicely for teammate Mesut Ozil to finish from close range. Overall, he wasn't very involved in Saturday's North London derby, but an enticing home matchup Tuesday versus Leicester City potentially presents a great bounce-back opportunity.

Giroud scored the first of Arsenal's five goals in Sunday's win over Aston Villa and also provided an assist later in the match.

Giroud has produced stellar returns in his somewhat abbreviated campaign thus far, as the Frenchman already boasts seven goals and one assist through just eight starting appearances this season. Sunday's match versus Aston Villa saw Giroud finish a one-on-one opportunity before he set up Arsenal's second goal with a fine through ball to teammate Mesut Ozil. Given his imposing physical attributes, Giroud represents a unique attacking option that, along with his great form, should earn him a regular place as Arsenal's front striker moving forward.

Giroud scored a header on a set piece during Arsenal's 2-0 win over Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

Giroud took a free kick from Santi Cazorla, who scored from the penalty spot earlier in the game, and headed it in for his sixth goal in 11 appearances this season. As long as he is fully fit, Giroud will continue to lead the line for the Gunners, even when Danny Welbeck returns from his thigh injury.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Giroud is available to face Stoke City on Sunday after serving a three-match ban for picking up a straight red card against QPR on Boxing Day.

With Danny Welbeck sidelined with a thigh injury, Giroud is likely to slot back into the starting XI against a Stoke side that has allowed 12 goals in 11 road matches this season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Giroud was given a straight red card during Friday's match against QPR and he will miss the next two Premier League matches.

Giroud will now miss the next three matches, allowing him to be eligible to return Jan. 11 against Stoke City.
