Arsenal head into this weekend’s action in a rather precarious position, they sit two point behind Chelsea in fourth but they themselves are only two points ahead of Everton who are chomping at their heels.
The prospect of missing out on Champions League football is unthinkable at the Emirates and Arsene Wenger know better than most that they need to pick up as many points as they can if they are to qualify for the Champions League next season.
There is some good news for the Gunners, of all the teams around them they look to have the best run in and while this is only on paper you would have to fancy them to finish the season strongly.
Olivier Giroud is one man who could make a huge impact on Arsenal’s final league position and we are tipping him to produce the goods this weekend when Arsenal travel to the Hawthorns to face West Brom.
Giroud has picked up ten goals in the league this season and with four goals and two assists in his last eight games his recent flourish couldn’t have come at a better time.
The other factor which weighs heavily in this assumption is the current form of Santi Cazorla, the Spaniard is producing his best form of the season and will certainly provide Giroud with plenty of ammunition this weekend.
The Baggies are in a bit of a free fall at the moment having lost 3-1 to West Ham last weekend and having also failed to beat Stoke back in round 30, while they will certainly provide a stern test for the Gunners you have to fancy Giroud to continue to find the net.
