Arsenal captain Thomas Vermaelen insists the goals will flow for Olivier Giroud.

The French striker is yet to score for the Gunners since his arrival from Montpellier.

"Giroud has fought in many battles and won many games. We can play the long ball, if we need to, because we know that Giroud upfront is fighting for every ball and is strong in the air.

"Giroud will quickly find his way to the goals, so far he's had little luck," said Vermaelen.
