Giroud promises goals will come

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud insists he is "keeping the faith" in his abilities as the wait for his first goal at his new club continues.

• Delaney: Progress for Wenger
• Arsenal 6-1 Southampton
• Limbert: Goal worries forgotten
• Sign up for UCL fantasy

Giroud failed to break his duck in a late substitute appearance as Arsenal smashed six past a hapless Southampton at Emirates Stadium on Saturday, so he will be looking to hit the target for the first time for Arsene Wenger's side in Tuesday night's opening Champions League game against his former club Montpellier.

"Confidence is so important for a striker," Giroud is quotes as saying in several Sunday newspapers. "It's important to keep the faith and to always keep going, even if the goals have not come for me so far.

"You have to always work hard because sometimes when you are a striker you can score every opportunity. You just need to keep concentrating on the game and never give up. I'm confident that this season will be a good one."

Giroud admits he will find it strange to come up against his old friends at Montpellier when the Champions League group stage gets under way, after he did so much to ensure they lifted the French title and claimed a place in Europe's elite competition.

"To return to Montpellier is very special because I spent two very happy years there which were fantastic," he states. "Montpellier is a family club and I left a lot of friends behind - everybody who works at the club and the players. So it will be a special moment for me on Tuesday when I return there after such a short time.

"It will be difficult for me to play against Montpellier, because there is a lot of emotion and I have so many good memories of last season, but I will concentrate on the pitch and on the match and I will not speak with my friends until the match is finished.

"I'm an Arsenal player and I want to score and to win this game for Arsenal. It will be my first game in the Champions League, so I want to win it. It is an important game for Arsenal and I have to forget I am playing Montpellier for 90 minutes.

"If I score on Tuesday, I will keep the celebration small. This will be out of my respect to my old club and Montpellier fans. I hope to receive a good reception from their supporters because I finished the top goal scorer for them last season and worked hard to win the title.

"I think the reaction will be good, but there will always be some people who decide to boo."
