Arsenal fans were reacting on Twitter last night as former striker, Olivier Giroud, put on a masterclass for Chelsea, scoring all four in a 4-0 win at Sevilla.
Giroud, 34, is the subject of widespread interest ahead of the January window, with the Frenchman struggling for regular minutes under Frank Lampard at the Blues.
However, given the chance last night, Giroud showed Lampard what he is all about as he rolled back the years with a devastating display of finishing against the La Liga outfit.
Arsenal sold Giroud to Chelsea back in 2018 for around £18m (BBC), and some Gunners fans have been reacting with dismay on Twitter after seeing the big striker net four.
It’s safe to say that, given the Gunners’ current form, some Arsenal fans were less than impressed with what they witness last night.
Better than lacazette i was a fan of ollie’s he improved yr on yr while he was with us and would be a better foil for Aubameyang than lacazette

Just the other day we were talking about him, giroud is easily one of the most underrated players in modern history

We haven’t had remotely the same threat since he left. We basically have 3 strikers that have the same attributes.

Olivier Giroud is easily 1 of my 5 favorite Arsenal players either. God bless him even if he’s with Chelsea’

As an Arsenal fan who watched Giroud’s service to AFC, It hurts me to see him being celebrated by Chelsea fans.
