Giroud tallied an assist in Sunday's 2-0 victory over Bournemouth.

Not often known for his passing acumen, Giroud picked up his third assist of the season when heading the ball down to Mesut Ozil who finished it up for the team's first goal in more than three matches. Despite questions as to his finishing quality that will pop up, the Frenchman has 12 goals and three assists and has successfully staved off Theo Walcott's charge as the first choice striker for the side.

FPL Transfer Watch: Preparing for Gameweek 26

Petr Cech has conceded just once in his past four league matches, and he leads all keepers with 12 clean sheets this season, but Brian Weidy warns why it's not quite the right time to add him in FPL leagues.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Giroud made two key passes, provided two crosses and was foiled on a couple of guilt-edged chances in Sunday's goalless draw with Stoke.

The striker nearly converted a one-on-one chance from an angle as well as an open header from a corner, only to be turned away by Jack Butland. Giroud had factored into 11 goals in nine games heading into Sunday, and although he failed to extend his streak, he certainly had opportunities. Giroud remains an excellent weekly fantasy option, and he will be even more enticing in next week's matchup versus the vulnerable Chelsea defense if playmaker Mesut Ozil returns to action.

Giroud scored two goals on five shots (two on target) in Wednesday's 3-3 draw with Liverpool.

The striker picked up a knock when he clashed heads with Mamadou Sakho in the first half, but shook it off and made an impact some 10 minutes later by glancing his boot and redirecting it into the goal off a corner kick. His second goal was a tremendous play, holding the ball up, spinning inside and unleashing a wicked shot into the corner of the goal. While he also bungled multiple chances including a wide-open goal on a perfect feed across the goal mouth, Giroud finally looks like the striker Arsenal needs to win the league. He has 12 goals in 21 Premier League matches and 18 goals across all competitions.

Giroud tallied an assist in Saturday's 1-0 victory over Newcastle United.

After zero assists in the first 27 matches, Giroud has tallied two in his last two, this one coming to Laurent Koscielny to break the scoreless deadlock. While this was not his best performance, Giroud has still shown himself to be in sparkling form and should appreciate the additional rest between matches now that they've gotten out of the busy festive period.

Giroud tallied an assist and took three shots (one on target) in Monday's 2-0 victory over Bournemouth.

In 27 matches across all competitions, Giroud has 15 goals but no assists. That changed on Monday after he played the middle of a beautiful give and go with Mesut Ozil and played a back heel flick to the streaking Ozil who finished for the second goal of the day. Giroud has cemented himself as one of the top strikers in England after a tough start and is in the best form of his career.

Giroud scored a goal on one shot (one on target) in Monday's 2-1 victory over Manchester City.

Just before the halftime whistle, Giroud was played through by Mesut Ozil and blasted a beautiful finish through Joe Hart's legs to double the Gunners' advantage. After spending a stretch on the bench as a super-sub, Giroud has shown himself to be the centre forward the Gunners have long searched for. In his last nine matches, Giroud has seven goals including in three-in-a-row. He's up to 15 goals in 25 matches across all competitions including 10 in 17 Premier League matches.

Giroud scored from the penalty spot in Sunday's 2-0 victory over Aston Villa.

Theo Walcottówho replaced Giroud as the center forward at one point this seasonódid well to draw the penalty in the eighth minute and Giroud made no mistakes from 12-yards out. The goal was his ninth in 16 Premier League matches and he's up to 14 in 24 matches across all competitions. The strong Frenchman can be inconsistent at times, but has been in the midst of the strongest run of form of his career.

Giroud slapped the hopes of Olympiakos with a hat-trick off four shots (all on target) in the last game of the Champions League group stage in the 3-0 victory over the Greek side Wednesday.

The Frenchman was merciless in a huge game for the Gunners to send them to the knock-out stages of the Champions League. In the absence of Danny Welbeck and Alexis Sanchez, he is the only other regular scoring option for Arsenal. It's not even Christmas yet and Giroud already has 13 goals, between Premier and Champions Leagues, in his previous years with Arsenal he's been on a 15, 18 and 13 goals total for the season. He's got another great fantasy match up coming up Sunday versus Aston Villa.
