Giroud acknowledges his poor performance against Liverpool

Arsenal v Sunderland - Premier League

Olivier Giroud has acknowledged his poor performance at Anfield.

The Arsenal striker, however, was far from the only one in the side to have an absolutely shocking afternoon, but at least he realises what the fans want to hear and hopefully they will rectify it against United on Wednesday.

Substituted after an hour, Giroud tweeted to say

Arsenal never got a chance to get started, Skrtel’s offside goal opening the scoring for Liverpool with the game hardly underway. Whatever the injustice of that first goal, there can be no excuses for the way Arsenal failed to react, conceding four goals in 20 minutes, the same number they had previously conceded in the 900 minutes before the game at Anfield.

Next up is a game against Manchester United which will give Arsenal a chance to get straight back up on their tile-challenging horse and with a chance for revenge against Liverpool in the FA Cup next week also on the horizon, there is certainly no time left for feeling sorry for themselves.

Hear what Arsene Wenger had to say after the game here.

    The shot by Suarez onto the post would have been the goal of the century had it gone in.

    Seriously, it should have been 8 or 9 goals. Coutinho and Sterling were incredible. Ozil would be lucky to make the bench for that Liverpool side.
