Giroud happy with demands of being Arsenal's leading striker

Olivier Giroud is confident he can cope with the workload of being Arsenal's leading striker in all competitions. With plenty of big games to come in the Premier League and UEFA Champions League, on top of a 2014 World Cup qualifying play-off with Ukraine, Giroud's schedule remains testing.

"Maybe I will have some rest next week, for the Capital One Cup," said Giroud.

"I will speak to the boss but I am used to playing a lot of games and I feel good with my body so, touch wood, no injuries."
