Olivier Giroud has just stuck a bit of a stonker against Crystal Palace.
That’s an insane finish from Giroud but he’ll get zero credit because he’s not Benzema.

Arsenal fans around the world have been pulling their hair out for weeks over the ongoing Benzema saga.
However, their current number one forward has just made a serious statement that suggests The Gunners may not need the Madrid man after all.
The current feeling among Gunners fans is that although Giroud is a decent centre forward, he is not a league winning striker.
However, the Frenchman showed he is capable of turning a half chance into a goal this afternoon after turning an Ozil cross into the goal with a superb scissors kick.
The ball in from his German team mate wasn’t bad but it was certainly awkward as it arrived behind Giroud rather than into his path. See how the Arsenal man quickly reacted and finished clinically in the vine below.
