Giroud took five shots, with four on goal, and scored one minute into second-half stoppage time during Arsenal's 4-1 win over Liverpool on Saturday.

Arsenal was up 3-0 after 45 minutes and yet Giroud hadn't played a role in any of them. However, fantasy owners were relieved to see him find the back of the net in the waning moments of the match, his seventh goal in his last six Premier League matches. He's arguably the hottest goal-scorer in England right now and will look to add to his tally next Saturday against Burnley at Turf Moor.

Giroud was very effective Tuesday versus Monaco, finishing with seven shots, two crosses and a goal in Arsenal's 2-0 Champions League victory.

The Frenchman tried to make up for missing several easy chances in the first leg, but fell short as Monaco advanced on away goals. Giroud is in excellent form with seven goals and an assist in his last eight matches, and Arsenal will now shift focus back to the Premier League, where they will face Newcastle on Saturday.

Giroud scored a wonderful goal during first-half stoppage time, before setting up another Arsenal goal during Saturday's 3-0 win over West Ham.

Giroud has gone on quite a tear lately, as he's tallied seven goals and three assists over his past 10 matches across all competitions. The Frenchman's latest goal completed a lovely one-touch passing sequence from Arsenal and ultimately provided the initial boost the Gunners needed to reel off a convincing win Saturday.

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.
