If the plan was to challenge Giroud ‘to up his game' by playing Sanogo ahead of him against Palace then there is a strong case to say that it worked.

Arsenal left it late to claw back a point from Saturday's Premier League clash against Everton in a 2-2 draw at Goodison Park. A 90th minute equaliser from Olivier Giroud was the defining moment of an improved second half performance, adding to Aaron Ramsey's goal which came with seven minutes remaining

Everton had taken the lead early in the first half when Mesut Ozil was caught napping by defender Seamus Coleman who nodded into the roof of the net after finding himself completely unmarked.

Coming off of a season in which one Arsenal player, Olivier Giroud, scored more than half of the team's goals scored by forwards (22 out of 42), there was little doubt that the North London club would strengthen its front line before the start of the 2014-15 campaign. The Gunners quickly made moves by splashing $50 million for Barcelona forward Alexis Sanchez and recalling youngster (and World Cup standout) Joel Campbell from a season-long loan at Olympiacos.

When Olivier Giroud charged down Sylvain Distin's clearance on Saturday evening and collapsed to the ground in a crumpled heap adjacent to the away end, I barely flickered in recognition. Partly because I'd yet to psychically realign with planet earth after the Frenchman's equaliser. But also because it's easy to be blasé about the sight of Olivier Giroud's anguished features and flicky hands.

While for the last two there are obvious replacements, who plays up front tonight is going to give Arsene Wenger something of a headache.

So, Costa Rica eh? I have to admit I'm somewhat aggrieved by the scoreline yesterday, mostly because I got a €20 free bet and put it on Joel Campbell to be first goalscorer at 10/1.

I don't know if he would have taken the penalty he should have been awarded, but if Chiellini hadn't fouled him and he'd been allowed continue his run, I suspect he'd have scored.
