The Stats That Show Arsenal's Giroud Is Better Than Chelsea's Costa

Arsenal's Olivier Giroud often gets stick from Arsenal fans, but at the moment his form is irresistibly good. So good, in fact, that it betters Chelsea's Diego Costa.

Giroud (£12million) scores at exactly the same rate at Costa (£35million), but contributes more assists and wins more aerial duels. Giroud's superiority with his back to goal makes Arsenal's play more fluid in attack and enables them to score beautiful goals like they did vs West Ham yesterday.

Costa may have the higher goal tally, but he'll be looking over his shoulder at the steam-train that is Giroud.
