It’s party time for Arsenal’s long-serving boss!
Arsene Wenger’s reign as Arsenal manager reached another impressive milestone on Saturday.
Olivier Giroud headed home a Mesut Ozil corner to break the deadlock in Arsenal’s Premier League game at Swansea City, notching the 2,000th goal the Gunners have scored during the Wenger era.

Giroud’s opener came on 49 minutes as Arsenal struck early in the second half after a poor first-half showing.
The Frenchman looked a little fragile earlier in the day, as he hobbled down the tunnel at the interval.
Fortunately for Arsenal, he was able to return.
Giroud’s goal was his 65th for the Gunners.
He is now one of the club’s most important players, especially following the news that fellow forward Theo Walcott will be out injured until after next month’s international break.
Arsenal eventually won 3-0, with Laurent Koscielny and Joel Campbell adding to Giroud’s deadlock-breaker.
