Giroud accepts rotation policy at Arsenal

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud accepts he will need a rest from time to time this season. The France international returned to lead the Gunners attack in the 1-1 draw against Everton on Sunday, having been rested for the midweek win over Hull.

"It did feel strange [to be on the bench against Hull] and I was a bit frustrated because I really want to play every game," Giroud said.

"But the boss said he had reason to leave me on the bench because it is better to have a rest sometimes, but I am obviously just really happy that the team won the game."
