Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is convinced of the quality of Olivier Giroud.

Wenger expects the £12million striker to start motoring – after claiming Giroud has released his self-imposed handbrake.

He said: “One of the big positives before that was Olivier’s two goals against Fulham.

“That and also his general performance. I believe he is playing with more freedom now. You can see that he is less tense – the handbrake has come off a bit and he has gained a little bit of freedom in his movement and technique.

“That is coming out in his game and we are happy with his progress.”
