Giroud, who arrived at the Emirates back in 2012 from Montpellier, has been a regular fixture in the first team this season, with 36 Premier League appearances made to date.

However, the France international has been lacking in the goal department, scoring only 12 league goals – the second-lowest in a season since he joined.

The 29-year-old has not scored since the 3-3 draw with Liverpool in January, but the recent assist against the Canaries has provided a boost as the campaign enters the final stages.

“It is always nice for a striker to score or assist a team-mate,” he told Arsenal Player. “IÂ’m pleased to be back, not on the scoresheet but on the assist sheet.

“I try to play with my first instinct and be efficient, but even if I didnÂ’t score IÂ’m pleased with that assist and I will try to keep working. I will work hard to get the confidence back and the goals as well.”
