John Stones: This Arsenal man is tougher to mark than Luis Suarez and Sergio Aguero


Everton defender John Stones believes Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud is tougher to mark than Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero and Barcelona man Luis Suarez.

The Frenchman endured a very disappointing campaign in the Premier League this season as he went fifteen games without scoring for the Gunners.

But the 22-year-old was full of praise for the strength of the Arsenal striker.

"I mean they [Sergio Aguero and Luis Suarez] are great players, with unbelievable movement," Stones is quoted as saying by Metro.

"[But] in all honesty, I'd have to say Olivier Giroud, you don't realise how strong he is.

"When he gets close to you he can hold you off and his touch is brilliant."
