Giroud scored in the 55th minute of Arsenal's 3-1 win over West Ham on Tuesday.

Giroud's goal was his 14th this season, which he's coupled with seven assists, although his last helper came back on Feb. 22 against Sunderland. The Frenchman's 14 goals now put him behind only Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge, Yaya Toure, Wayne Rooney, Sergio Aguero and Jay Rodriguez in the entire Premier League.

Giroud is likely to start Saturday against Sunderland, according to ESPN FC.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is playing his cards tight to the vest with the Giroud situation, though it seems like Giroud's resting against Bayern Munich was a silent suspension for the striker's recent hotel transgression.

Giroud is not starting Wednesday's Championship League match against Bayern Munich. Yaya Sanogo is getting the call up front.

Giroud did not play in Sunday's FA Cup victory over Liverpool.

The Gunners are in the teeth of a nasty schedule, and this was a smart spot for the heavily-used Giroud to get a breather. And perhaps Giroud's head wouldn't have been clear for the match - he issued a passionate weekend apology (to his wife and his club) for an apparent marriage indiscretion at the beginning of February. "I now have to fight for my family and for my club and obtain their forgiveness, Giroud said. "Nothing else matters at the moment."
