Arsenal is currently 13 points behind Chelsea sitting 6th in the table as a section of the clubs supporters call for the sacking of Arsene Wenger after a dismal performance that saw them lose away last weekend to Stoke.

“Chelsea were 13 points ahead before the game last weekend and we are still 13 points behind them,” Giroud said.

“Chelsea will not win every game – we are going to take games one by one and focus on ourselves.

“If we don’t lose, we don’t have to look at Chelsea’s results.

“We just need some momentum, some more wins and to get our confidence back.”

Despite last weekend’s loss away to Stoke City Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has told the Daily Express that the players are as equally upset with the results as the fans who pack the Emirates stadium each weekend.

“I understand the fans because when you are a team like Arsenal, the fans want you to win every single game, especially when they follow you to away games.”

“It’s always like that when you suffer a defeat, I understand the fans are really disappointed but we are very disappointed as well.

“It is not the manager (who is to blame). He is a great manager. Just because we lost at Stoke in an away game does not mean the season is finished or that everything is over.

“They have to remember what the manager has brought to the club.

“There is no other coach who knows Arsenal better than him so I am in no doubt he is the man to solve this situation.”
