thumbnail Hello,

The French international has praised the Gunners’ supporters for their backing and reveals he is spurred on every time the crowd sing the famous Beatles tune

Olivier Giroud admits he can’t help feeling goosebumps every time he hears the Arsenal fans sing his name to the tune of the Beatles' 'Hey Jude'.

The Frenchman has become a crowd favourite after making a strong start to the season with seven goals and four assists in 10 Premier League matches.

In the absence of Lukas Podolski and Theo Walcott, Giroud has led Arsenal’s attack impressively and has credited the fans for the lethal form which has helped the Gunners establish a five-point lead in the Premier League.

“I am really proud to have my own song,” Giroud told reporters.

“It makes me have goosebumps. It's really nice [to hear] when you are on the pitch.

“I love the English pop rock so I love The Beatles, Coldplay as well. I like a lot of English music.”

Giroud will lead the line for Arsenal when the Gunners face Borussia Dortmund at Signal Iduna Park in the Champions League on Wednesday evening.
