Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud expects to be fit for their Champions League opener with Olympique Marseille.

The striker hobbled off late on during victory at Sunderland.

Giroud said: "It is not bad actually, not as bad as I first feared. I got a kick earlier in the game but no-one was near me when I did it this time.

"I tried to connect with the ball a little bit too early and I caught my foot in the grass. I twisted my ankle but fortunately, it is nothing major.

"I am OK, sure I will be fine [for Marseille]."
