Giroud and MKhitaryan battle for goal of the season with their stunning scorpion kick goals.
As to which one is the better will definitely depend on the team you support, the player you like, or perhaps the one you watched first or last. All that matters is that, both goals are sensational and there is no doubt the two will have to go head-to-head for goal of the season.
The man-of-the moment however will be Olivier Giroud, because his’ is more recent compared to Mkhitaryan’s, whose own effort was nearly a week ago.
Putting the two players on a scale, Mkhitaryan is more skilful with his ball control, vision, and technique, but Giroud cab always be proud because he has once again proved his worth to Arsenal with his sensational ‘scorpion strike’, which will go down as one of the best premier league goals.
Gary Lineker labelled the strike as the “goal of the year”, while Gary Neville even described it “as one of the best goals I’ve ever seen.”
It was Giroud’s 62nd Premier League goal, equalling Robert Pires’ total. Only four Frenchman have more – Thierry Henry, Nicolas Anelka, Louis Saha and Eric Cantona.
