* Arsenal FC beat Crystal Palace 2-0 in the English Premier League match on Sunday, January 1, 2017 to open an account that they are indeed title contenders
* One time out of favour striker, Frenchman Olivier Giroud started the victory party by scoring a sumptuous scorpion goal that made everyone ecstatic
The race for who becomes the Premier League king continues as Arsenal Football Club brushed past Crystal Palace at the Emirates yesterday by two unreplied goals to show they are real title contenders and not pretenders.
Olivier Giroud put the ball into the net in the first half when Arsenal dangerman Alexis Sanchez crossed the ball to him, before Alex Iwobi scored a looping header to put the match beyond their visitors, Crystal Palace. The goal by Giroud was a statement by the former Ligue One player that he deserves a permanent first team shirt with the Gunners.
The Frenchman striker’s goal was a bit similar to Manchester United Henrik Mikhitaryn’s scorpion goal in a recent EPL match. However, the Arsenal goal poacher’s own was out of this world.
The goal was nicknamed “The Perfect Goal” by some football pundits.
