Reports from France are claiming that Olivier Giroud will not start tonight against PSG and a tweet from Lucas makes it seem as if he will.
The Frenchman was expected to get his first start of the season but when asked about him at his pre-match press conference, Arsene Wenger said he was ‘nearly’ ready to start.
We all ignored that and just expected Giroud to start anyway.
Then this happened:
Breaking | Olivier Giroud will not start for Arsenal tonight, Alexis Sanchez will start as the central striker, according to RMC.

When we first heard the news about Giroud we debated if that meant that the Ox and Theo would surely be starting but now it looks as if Lucas could be lining up, most likely on the flank.
