Emirates Stadium has not seen the best of him, says France forward.
Arsenal forward Olivier Giroud has promised that the Premier League has yet to see him at his best and has warned there is much more to come from him.

Manager Arsene Wenger splashed out £13million to sign the French international striker from Ligue 1 champions Montpellier in the summer and he has been a relative hit with 14 goals in 34 appearances in an Arsenal shirt.
But the 26-year-old, who has not always been a first choice with Theo Walcott now rivalling him for a central striking berth, has promised Arsenal fans that there is much more to come after overcoming a slow start to life at the Emirates Stadium.
“It’s all going to plan, but I know I can do better,” he told Le Parisien newspaper.
“I have room to improve, which means I can be more ambitious. I have matured in my mind. I have also learnt a lot, in particular with my back to goal. I control the ball more when I receive it and I read the situation.
“I am fortunate to have a coach who I can talk to and share things with. Recently we made a video and he talked me through how I can improve. On the pitch we know what we are doing. There is a trust and communication between us.”
Giroud bounced back from a difficult start to his Arsenal career in which he did not find the net in his first seven games and admits he never doubted he would be a Premier League success – despite the run without hitting the back of the net.
“As a striker you can’t doubt yourself – in a career you will have periods of scarcity,” he added.
“You must be positive constantly and I’m like that. Here, it’s a requirement at a very high level. When you have an opportunity you must take it. When it’s not easy, you have to look ahead and demand more from yourself. That’s just my motto.”
