The henchman at the Gunners Football club, Arsene Wenger believes that a pair of Alexis Sanchez and Oliver Giroud in the attacking segment of the team is a possible one.
This came on the heels of a brace each from the duo during their game with Sunderland last weekend.
Giroud who did not start in the match, had come off the bench to score two goals for Arsenal with his first two touches, thus for a couple of hours, sending the Gunners to the top of the Premier League table.
This season so far, Giroud has had just four substitute appearances during which he has been unable to score before his wonderful performance on Saturday.
Wenger has hailed him and believes he can pair up the two whenever the need arises and sees no reason why the duo cannot play together.
“The headache is easy when you score goals. It is a headache when you don’t score. Sometimes I can play them [Sanchez and Giroud] together in a 4-4-2, because Mesut Ozil can play behind or on the flank, or sometimes I can play them separately” Arsene Wenger had said after the match on Saturday.
He also had this to say about Sanchez:
“Sanchez is doing extremely well. He enjoys that role (up front alone). When they score goals you have no headache. We play every three days. It is simple. No-one can play all the games.”
Wenger was impressed with his team’s performance in their 4-1 thrashing of Sunderland although he decried the number of chances his players missed. He however was thankful that they were able to keep up the performance to the end of the match which he believes is what matters the most.
Before a goalless draw with Middlesbrough, Arsenal had gone six games and come off victorious. Wenger hopes it remains that way as there might be uncertainty if they come out with another loss.
