Olivier Giroud stole Sead Kolasinac’s goal against Huddersfield

Arsenal were 4-0 up and Kolasinac had done all of the hard work

Sead Kolasinac doesn’t get that many opportunities to score goals.

So when they do come around the last thing he needs is a teammate taking the ball off his toe for a tap in.

That is exactly what Olivier Giroud did to him to put the cherry on top of Arsenal’s 5-0 win against Huddersfield.

Arsenal had been in full Wenger-ball mode in the second half zipping passes around the final third.

Giroud had already scored once in the game but he wanted to put his name down for the first team with a couple of goals.

No one was getting in his way.

He’s through!

He’s through!

Kolasinac scooped forwards a pass on the edge of the area, he received the ball back running into the six yard box and then expertly controlled it on his chest and expertly swerved round the last defender.

All that was left to do was apply a right foot finish and run off into the adoration of the Arsenal fans.

But instead, once Kolasinac had done the hard work and was ready to score his second goal of the season he looked up to see the coiffured Giroud with a cheeky look on his face, knowing he was about to steal the Bosnian’s goal.



The Frenchman steamed in and absolutely leathered the ball past Jonas Loessl.

Credit where credit is due, Giroud turned straight to his teammate to congratulate him on the build-up play.
