Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was impressed with Olivier Giroud’s cameo when he came on in the 7-3 win over Newcastle.

The Frenchman came on with 15 minutes to go with the score at 4-3 and promptly scored twice to make the game safe.

And his performance impressed the manager.

“Yes, he came on very sharp,” Wenger said.

“He looked dangerous on crosses, he looked mobile, technically sound.

“He had as well an impact when he came on.”
