The French international, who was named the Barclays Premier League player of the month for March, has been in superb goalscoring form of late as Arsene Wenger’s side have strung together a good run of results towards the end of the season.
Although the title will certainly have seemed like a distant dream not long ago, there is now growing talk that Chelsea could drop off in their coming games and Arsenal might just have enough in them to give the Blues a scare late on in the campaign, with other challengers Manchester City also falling away.
Giroud concedes that Arsenal will have to win each of their remaining games to stand any chance, which may be a tall order, but it is not something the 28-year-old would rule out as he aims to finish strongly.
“We want to finish strongly,” he said. “We need to focus on our game first and if we succeed to win all of our remaining eight games maybe we can have a look at the Chelsea and City results.
“Yes [we can win the title] but it will be difficult, I try to be honest, I believe we need to win every game.”
