Arsenal frontman Olivier Giroud has insisted he has no qualms with the club’s current busy schedule and is simply enjoying his football with the Premier League frontrunners.

The Gunners suffered a setback on Tuesday night as they were beaten 2-1 by Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, but that was only the club’s second loss in all competitions in their last 25 games.

Having made a slow start to life with Arsenal following his move from Montpellier last summer, French international Giroud is starting to find his feet at the club, with seven goals in all competitions so far this term.

With the likes of Theo Walcott and Lukas Podolski out injured, plenty of responsibility has been placed on Giroud to fill the void up front.

And the 27-year-old has responded well to the added pressure and feels his fitness is holding up to the test of leading the line both domestically and in Europe.

He said: “Maybe I will have some rest next week, for the Capital One Cup.

“I will speak to the boss but I am used to playing a lot of games and I feel good with my body so, touch wood, no injuries.”

Having suffered that defeat to Dortmund in Europe, Giroud and his Arsenal team-mates will have already turned their attentions to Premier League matters and their clash with Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The Eagles may well be without a manager following the departure of Ian Holloway on Wednesday and the Gunners will be determined to try and extend their lead at the top of the table.
