Olivier Giroud insists that he has the support of his manager Arsene Wenger and his Arsenal teammates as he continues to struggle for goals.

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has insisted that club manager Arsene Wenger trusts him despite his lack of goals so far this season.

The 26-year-old came on an 80th-minute substitute against Olympiakos in the Champions League on Wednesday, a game that the Gunners won 3-1.

"I tried [to score]," he told Eurosport. "I try all I can but sometimes you need to keep the faith and keep going. Sometimes when you are a striker it is difficult.

"I don't know why, but I try to do the right things. I think I am a little unlucky and sometimes I need to score. I don't score but I am okay and I keep going. I continue to work hard in training and keep the trust.

"We won and the boss (Arsene Wenger) trusts me, my teammates too, our fans too, and I want to continue. I feel good in this team. It's okay, I continue to work harder and to score and to give a lot of pleasure to our fans."

Giroud joined Arsenal from French champions Montpellier in the summer.
