Olivier Giroud must be feeling a little uncomfortable on the bench, with Theo Walcott threatening his starting spot with a fantastic first half hat-trick against West Bromwich Albion.
The lightning fast forward has really staked his claim for a starting spot, firing us into the lead with just three minutes on the clock – a rocket of a finish crashing in off the crossbar. He doubled his and our tally ten minutes later, a toe poked finish into the bottom corner getting the better of Boaz Myhill.
He completed his hat-trick with a little over half an hour gone, with excellent buildup play from his teammates gifting him a tap in.
Jack Wilshere and Santi Cazorla linked up superbly, drawing West Brom’s usually sturdy defence in and dragging them out of position. Cazorla’s shot-cum-cross found it’s way through to Walcott, who got away from Joleon Lescott to secure his hat-trick.
