Olivier Giroud had failed to score a goal in his last ten appearances for Arsenal. However, the French striker hit the net twice in the Gunners’ 4-0 return win against Hull City in the FA Cup.
Not surprisingly, Twitter celebrated the 29-year-old’s brace like crazy…

1 – Olivier Giroud’s goal was the first that Hull City have conceded in a competitive home match since 15th December 2015. Breached.

Giroud needed this game, he’s about to do a madness against Barca

Gorgeous Giroud at £12m is surely one of Arsene Wenger’s best value signings.
Brilliant return on investment. Decent hair too.

20th goal for Giroud this season. Apart from his recent lean spell, done well.

For all that is said about Giroud, he’s now scored 20 goals in all competitions this season. Not bad for a £12m player. #AFC
