Arsenal striker Giroud: Ozil and I already have understanding

Olivier Giroud admits he's struck a quick understanding with new Arsenal star Mesut Ozil.

For victory over Napoli, the France striker scored his sixth goal in 10 appearances this season with a close-range finish after exchanging passes with Ozil in the 15th minute. Arsenal were already a goal to the good thanks to Ozil's brilliant finish from Aaron Ramsey's pass.

"Mesut was unbelievable tonight, as usual," Giroud told arsenal.com. "It is really simple to find him on the pitch and we have a really good understanding on the pitch. He assisted on my goal and he always does the right thing in the right moment.

"This is his fifth assist since he joined us and I think he was the man we needed to really improve ourselves. He has incredible technique and he did very well tonight. His goal is quite difficult to score because he was far [from the goal], he had really good precision in his shot.

"I have the same [understanding] with Jack and Tomas and Aaron and Theo as well so I'm really pleased to play with these kinds of players."
