West Ham United winger Matt Jarvis was frustrated with their defeat at Arsenal.
The 28-year-old winger was back in Sam Allardyce's starting XI for a Barclays Premier League fixture for the first time since November.
"It's mixed for me really," he said. "I was delighted to get back in the team and play, but gutted with the final result and really wish we didn't concede right on half time.
"That knocked us. Going in to half time at 0-0 would have been great and allowed us to set our stall out for the second half, but it was a great finish from Giroud.
"One of the things we wanted to do was get in behind, put crosses in and create chances. For spells we did that and it would have been nice to get the first goal and see what happened from there."
