Following a 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace on Sunday, shot-stopper Petr Cech insists team-mate Olivier Giroud is always a threat for opposing defences.
The Gunners broke the deadlock in the 17th minute when a cross from Alexis Sanchez was put past Wayne Hennessey by Giroud with an exceptional scorpion kick.
Arsene Wenger’s men went into the break with a one-goal lead and doubled it soon when Alex Iwobi’s header found the back of the net.
With the win over Sam Allardyce’s men, Arsenal moved to third position in the Premier League table, but dropped down to fourth following Manchester City's win on Monday.
Cech, who kept a clean sheet for his side for a second successive time, hailed Giroud and his knack for getting on the scoresheet at vital times.
“I always keep saying that he’s one of those players who you love to have in the team, because he’s a handful and he can score important goals”, Cech told Arsenal Player.
“As we know, he scores important goals, no matter if he starts or if he comes off the bench.
“He’s always a threat”, added the 34-year-old goalkeeper.
Giroud has seven goals and three assists to his name in 17 games in all competitions this season.
He has started the last two games for Wenger's men and will be looking to be again on target when his side take on Bournemouth this evening.
