After going 1-0 ahead against Sunderland on Saturday, most of us had the sneaking suspicion that the scoreline wouldn’t stay that way.
Sure enough, just before half time Sunderland got a dubious free-kick and Giroud managed to kick it into the roof of our own net. Great.
Luckily we came back to win 3-1 through goals from Giroud (greedy, to be honest) and Ramsey, which is why I can now take a moment to joke about Twitter’s reaction to the Frenchman’s original blunder.
Some saw the funny side…
Giroud is such a glory hunter, scored an own goal so he could give us the lead smh

What’s more annoying: Giroud scoring an OG or Motson’s pronunciation of Gi-rude?

Giroud was so close to finally becoming a cult hero then Walcott got injured. Hate figure once again.
