Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is hopeful that striker Olivier Giroud continues to keep up his recent run of good form.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is pleased with the recent form of striker Olivier Giroud.

The 26-year-old scored for France in their 1-1 draw with Spain in a 2014 World Cup qualifier on Tuesday, and was also on target for the Gunners in their 3-1 win at West Ham United just before the international break.

"There are two things when you are a striker," said Wenger. "First, I'm always worried when a striker doesn't have chances.

"In his case, he always had chances in every single game and couldn't convert them into goals.

"The conversion rate goes in cycles. Once a player starts to score, suddenly he takes off for a while and suddenly it stops again [and] nobody has really found out why. I hope he's at the start of a good cycle."

Giroud joined Arsenal from French champions Montpellier in the summer.
