Olivier Giroud scored twice as Arsenal demolished Sunderland 4-1 at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

The Frenchman was restored to the starting line-up in place of Yaya Sanogo by manager Arsene Wenger and duly repaid his faith with two first-half goals.

Tomas Rosicky then added a third in magnificant fashion, before Laurent Koscielny added insult to injury with a fourth after half-time, despite a late consolation from Emanuele Giaccherini.

The result saw the Gunners close the gap to league-leaders Chelsea back to just one point.

Olivier Giroud scored a first-half brace to put Arsenal in charge against Sunderland at Emirates Stadium – and Tomas Rosicky rounded off a brilliant team goal just before the break.

Giroud steered a low finish past Vito Mannone after five minutes and then latched onto a poor backpass from Santiago Vergini to double the home side’s lead after half an hour.
But the best was saved until three minutes before the break when Rosicky played one-twos with Jack Wilshere and Giroud before lifting the ball over Mannone.
Before the game Arsène Wenger had spoken of the need to overcome any “negative vibes” after the midweek defeat to Bayern Munich. The gruelling nature of that match prompted the manager to freshen up his starting XI with five changes.
Mesut Ozil was rested completely while Kieran Gibbs was sidelined by injury. In came Nacho Monreal, Rosicky, Lukas Podolski, Olivier Giroud and Mikel Arteta – the latter after serving a European suspension.
There was a familiar face in the Sunderland goal – former Gunner Mannone – and the Capital One Cup finalists arrived in north London in fine fettle, unbeaten in their last six matches on the road and thriving under new manager Gustavo Poyet.
There was an even more familiar face in the stands as Dennis Bergkamp looked on, hours after a statue of the Dutchman was unveiled outside Emirates Stadium to recognise his contribution to the Club.
