The Frenchman’s first half strike gives Wenger’s men a much needed victory.
Tottenham Hotspur were the only Premier League side that could match Liverpool’s 100% record, but failed to do so as fierce rivals Arsenal beat the side at the Emirates Stadium.
A first half goal for the in-from Olivier Giroud secured a 1-0 victory for the hosts, despite the fact that many believed all Spurs’ new signings would give the away team the edge.
To date no fewer than seven new players have been bought by Tottenham for a combined cost in excess of £100m, but new faces Roberto Soldado, Paulinho, Nacer Chadli, Etienne Capoue or Erik Lamela could prevent this defeat.
There was much anticipation surrounding this fixture and Giroud opened the scoring when the striker latched onto a ball by Theo Walcott.
When the Gunners lost their opening league match at the Emirates to Aston Villa, many thought a crisis was on the club’s hands and manager Arsene Wenger was criticised for having made no big signings.
With just over 24 hours left in the current window, the Frenchman has only acquired youngster Yaya Sanogo and former player Mathieu Flamini on free transfers.
This coupled with injury problems could have left the home team in a bad way, but despite Jack Wilshere being taken off due to fitness concerns the three points went to the red half of north London.
It’s four wins on the bounce now in all competitions for Wenger’s men and the club are level on points with Spurs in the league.
