Giroud is confident Arsenal will bounce back quickly.

Arsene Wenger's men were disappointing when they played French side Monaco in the Champions League on Wednesday, and Olivier Giroud who had a bad night on the day can’t wait to get back to winning ways against Everton.

The Gunners lost 3-1 to Leonardo Jardim’s men and French international Giroud says he is still hurting from the defeat and reckons they need to respond rapidly at the Emirates on Sunday.

“I am not a better or worse player than three days ago, it is just about confidence and keeping [strong],” he told Arsenal Player.

“I am really hurting, more than disappointed, it has been embarrassing for me. But I have never given up in my career and sometimes I have had tough games like that before.

“It was difficult because nothing went right, everything was tough for me. I tried to keep focused but I understood why the boss wanted to substitute me. It was not my day.

“When you are a striker people expect more from you. I did well recently and scored a lot of goals, but when you miss chances it is like that - you have to question yourself. I will keep working hard and bounce back as soon as possible.”
