Arsenal have to start better - Giroud

Doyle BarkerJan 08, 2017

However, every day is a new opportunity to prove your doubters wrong and McGeady seemed hell bent on seizing his side's FA Cup third round clash against Arsenal to do exactly that.

It was a lively Cup tie, to say the least, and any complaints about it being a little one-sided were answered when Arsenal equalised right at the start of the second half.

Ramsey levelled matters within 60 seconds of the restart and Giroud netted the victor a minute from time for his 10th goal in his last eight starts for the club.

Coverage of today's game between Arsenal and Preston will be shown live on BT Sport 2, (channel 409 on BT TV), with the pre-match build-up starting at 5pm before kick-off at 5.30pm.

That was not what we expected from Arsenal but it was another good fightback and the main thing is we got the job done.

A late Olivier Giroud goal gave Arsenal the win at Deepdale as they advanced to the 4th round of the FA Cup.

Preston had the better of the first period with Hugill failing to connect with a Robinson cross mid-way through the half before the Lilywhites had a goal disallowed for a foul from Paul Huntington on David Opsina. The goal against North End was the Wales international's first of the season.

Wenger sent his troops out early for the second half and his stern words clearly worked with them grabbing an equaliser just a matter of seconds into the second stanza.

Arsenal Manager said,"Alexis wants always to play", said the boss, "and on one side when I don't play him, people say 'why don't you play him?' and on the other hand I am criticised for using him too much".
