'Plan B' Giroud offers Arsenal alternative route to League success

It pressed and harried Arsenal, and scored an equalizer after Cech tripped Whatmore in the box and Sunderland was awarded a penalty.
I am not sure that the Arsenal and France worldwide striker Olivier Giroud will be thanking his fellow countryman too much for his comments after the win at Sunderland, even though the combative midfield star was full of praise for Giroud for his attitude as well as his ability.
The match turned on the introduction of Giroud, who scored with his first two touches as Arsenal netted three times in seven second-half minutes.
"Mentally, Olivier is absolutely fantastic", Arsenal manager Wenger said.
"He's a guy who has gone through some hard times, he was even questioned by the crowd before the European Championship in France.
I don't feel that pressure from the people I work with".
"In the Premier League at 1-1 you have as well many chances to lose the game".
Arsenal are now level on 23 points with Manchester City and Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table but have just completed a run of four successive games against lower-table opposition in October. You hoped for their sake that they would at least go down with dignity in the second 45 mins.
Lebanese presidential vote goes to second round
Al-Akhbar newspaper had reported Wednesday that Sabhan would express the kingdom's support for Hariri's presidential initiative. Hezbollah has accused Saudi Arabia of thwarting political initiatives and blocking the election of a president in Lebanon.
Speaking to the club's official website, the imposing frontman said: "We've only played a quarter of the league".
Moyes said: "I'm experienced".
David Moyes has pledged to keep doing what he does after Sunderland's latest setback ensured they plunged to a record-equalling nadir. "We've all gone through hard periods in life and he's gone through hard periods at Everton and always come out stronger, and I'm sure he will do that here".
"And I think if David Moyes' team don't beat Hull then he'll go". "I'll keep doing what I do".
"It's still the beginning of the league and I'm not the man who will speak too much because we are first".
"It was important to improve our game again and not to do the mistakes we did in the last few weeks".
Toothless United, with one goal in four games and a solitary win in seven, were left to see the other big guns with title aspirations pull away as City, Arsenal and Liverpool all struck four goals away from home. We were playing against a team of better quality than us.
