Arsenal 1 - 0 West Brom

Olivier Giroud turned frustration to pure joy as we left it late to win on Boxing Day.
The France striker held off Gareth McAuley to head home Mesut Ozil’s cross after an ultra-defensive Albion had kept us at bay for so long.
We had around 80 per cent of the ball but Albion defended in numbers and did it expertly, filling gaps and closing down space while offering very little at the other end.
Alexis fired against the post in the second half and Albion goalkeeper Ben Foster denied the Chilean as well as Alex Iwobi and Giroud.
In this game of attack v defence it was the defence that looked like going home the happier - but Giroud changed all that.
