Olivier Giroud eager to impress against Monaco


Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud is ready to help the Gunners qualify for the next round of the Champions League.

The Frenchman had a nightmare performance against Monaco in the first leg, missing chance after chance.

But he bounced back straight away scoring against Everton days later, away at Queens Park Rangers and also last Saturday against West Ham United.

And he wants more of the same when the Gunners take on Leonardo Jardim's men at the Stade Louis II.

"Football is a sport where you need to have a strong mentality because you have to face some difficulties," Giroud told the club's official website.

"Even when you play well and score a lot of goals, if you miss some [chances in a] game, everything is forgotten. You have to have a conscience about it and be aware.

"I know when I play well or not. I know how to bounce back. I used to say that football is an everlasting new beginning. You have to be aware of that and do it.

"I try to bounce back as quick as I can and it's true the boss gave me a chance to do it against Everton.

"I tried to do it straight away. If you let the doubts enter your head it's even more difficult to cope.

"There are always tough moments like that because we do a hard job. You have to question yourself every week and bounce back.

"I try to show my answer on the pitch with my mentality. It was nice to do it."
