[Video Goals] Crystal Palace 1-2 Arsenal: Giroud Stunner Sinks Eagles

By on August 16, 2015

Olivier Giroud scored a stunning volley to help Arsenal to a 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park this afternoon.

The Gunners started the brighter of the two teams and took a deserved lead in the 15th minute when Olivier Giroud scored a stunning scissor-kick to make it 1-0.

Palace then got themselves back on level terms just 10 minutes later when Joel Ward fired home an excellent strike from the edge of the area to make it 1-1 at half-time.

Arsenal restored their lead in the 55th minute when Alexis Sanchez’s far post header was sliced into his own net by Damien Delaney for 2-1 and that turned out to be the winner as we held on despite some late pressure from the hosts.

The win gets our season off and running following the disappointing loss to West Ham last weekend.
