Arsenal’s hat-trick hero Olivier Giroud has been named in the WhoScored Champions League Team of the Week after his impressive display last night.

The French international opened the scoring in Athens with a first half header before putting us in control with a smart finish just after half-time. The striker then sealed his first ever hat-trick for Arsenal from the penalty spot to secure a 3-0 victory over Olympaikos.

The result saw us leapfrog the Greek champions into second spot in Group F and secure a place in the knockout stages of the Champions League for the 16th consecutive season.

Giroud’s performance earned him a WhoScored rating of 9.49 which was enough to see him named in the Team of the Week alongside a staggering SIX Real Madrid players.

The La Liga giants thrashed Malmo 8-0 at the Bernabeu on Tuesday night and Isco, Ronaldo and Benzema have all made it in to the TOTW with perfect scores of 10/10 while defenders Danilo, Arbeloa also made the cut.
