Giroud pleased with 50th Premier League goal.

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud is delighted to have reached the 50 goal mark in the Premier League when the Gunners defeated Aston Villa 2-0 on Sunday.

Giroud scored from the penalty spot in the 8th minute to give Arsenal the lead before Aaron Ramsey increasd the deficit in the 38th minute.

“I’m pleased with that and I don’t want to stop here,” he said, as quoted. “I tried to do a good job for my team-mates today and I did well with the penalty. I was the one who had to take it.

“We were very good on the counter-attack with Theo and Mesut and [got] another clean sheet, so it was a really good day. It is a fantastic week. We did a great job in the Champions League and we really wanted to finish the week with a win and to be top of league before Leicester’s game against Chelsea. It is nice and hopefully we can have a great game against Manchester City on Monday.

“I’m very pleased with the performance today and we are in a great position and even if everything was not perfect, we had a lot of chances today which is good for me and the team.”
