Olivier Giroud said he has been ‘a little unlucky’ so far for Arsenal, but insists he is not worried by his start in the Premier League.
The striker has only found the net once in nine games – in a 6-1 thrashing of League One outfit Coventry City in the League Cup.
Giroud notched 21 Ligue 1 goals for Montpellier last season, prompting Arsene Wenger to pay 12 million pounds for his services, and the striker believes the support of his manager and team-mates is crucial to him finding his feet in England.
He told the club’s official website: “I try (to score), I try all I can. Sometimes you need to keep the faith, to keep going. When you are a striker, sometimes it’s difficult. I don’t know why, but I do try to do the right thing.
“I think I’m a little unlucky. I’ll keep going and continue to work hard in training. People say to me, ‘the goal is coming soon, don’t worry, we trust you’ and it’s very important for me to feel the support of people and my team-mates.”
Giroud also feels Arsenal are collectively impressing and does not believe the disappointing 2-1 defeat to Chelsea will prevent the Gunners from continuing their promising early-season form.
He added: “We are a good team. Although we lost against Chelsea I think it was an accident. We are confident for the future and I am confident. I don’t worry about the future. The goals are coming soon.”
