Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is delighted with this season's form of Olivier Giroud.

His goal against Crystal Palace was his eighth of the season.

"Olivier always puts a shift in, that is what makes him great," said Wenger. "He misses some chances but he always gets the support from our fans because he shows he is ready for a fight.

"The fact that he kept going against Palace got him the goal.

"How much he has improved, I don’t know. But he has, that’s obvious to everybody. If he keeps working like that then he will improve again. I like his spirit."
