Olivier Giroud returned to the side against FC Köln, and it didn’t go too well for him.
He was unable to break down the German side, and in the end, that is what hurt Arsene Wenger’s men.
Alexandre Lacazette has had a good season so far, and so Giroud will likely be back on the bench come Saturday. He’ll need to get back to scoring regularly if he really wants to become a first teamer on a weekly basis.
His chance will come eventually, but it is unlikely this weekend.
