Giroud finished as Arsenal's leading scorer with 16 goals and eight assists in 36 Premier League appearances this season.

Giroud experienced an up-and-down season that saw him begin with a flurry of four goals in four matches. As virtually Arsenal's only reliable center forward, Giroud ended up making a tiresome 42 appearances across all competitions, which understandably saw his form dip at times due to fatigue. Nonetheless, the Frenchman finished the season strong and ultimately improved on the 11 goals and three assists he recorded during his debut Premiership season last term. While the Gunners are expected to sign a more pacey talisman in the summer transfer window, Giroud should remain a valuable option at forward in fantasy leagues next season.
