Arsenal Should Replace Oliver Giroud To Stay In Title Race

Arsenal FC have not done too bad for the start of the Premier League with a win and a draw. The team put out an amazing display against Manchester City in the community shield and have a steady foot in the League. As the season draws on, many unpredictable things can happen but that’s not the case for Arsenal as they are always predicted to have a slew of injuries. Their first casualty is that of the France international Oliver Giroud. The striker is not known for prolific goalscoring capabilities with Arsenal but he is quite important in the build up play  and does an excellent job holding up the ball.

Giroud at times has been that go-to guy for Arsenal and without his presence they might be missing something special. Giroud injured himself at Goodison park while playing Everton. In the past, we have seen time and time again how Arsenal have let injuries ravish any chance they would have at claiming the Premier League trophy. When it was not Robin Van Persie, it was Theo Walcott or Aaron Ramsey.

While the transfer window is open, Arsenal have been granted the chance to make amends before the window closes. There has been talk about Arsenal tracking Danny Welbeck from Manchester United and Edin Dzeko from Manchester City which seems quite impossible now since they have just extended his contract.

Arsene Wenger has been in this same position before and by now you would expect him to learn from his mistakes. Arsenal cannot challenge with a team that is not at full strength, as a matter of fact, no team can. It would be wise of him to make an addition because, with Giroud out for possibly three months, the title race might already be wrapped up when he can return to action.
