Arsene Wenger has hailed Olivier Giroud’s Scorpion Kick goal against Crystal Palace as a ‘Work Of Art.’

Giroud scored with a backheel after Alexis Sanchez’s cross that was meant for him. The ball landed slightly behind him and the French international decided it to finish it in a different manner. Recently Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored a similar type of goal against Sunderland and Giroud’s goal could give him the competition for the goal of the season.

With Giroud scoring the opener, Alex Iwobi later added a second one to fire Arsenal to the third position of the Premier League table. The 30-year old’s goal was a result of a flowing move involving six Gunners players.

Praising the forward Wenger said that he was aware of his quality, “It was a great counter-attack at great speed, and in fact the ball was kicked behind him and he had that reflex that surprises everybody who knows football and is what makes football great.

“It’s a surprise, of course a fantastic goal. I was a bit spoilt over the year by that exceptional quality that everybody had.

“It’s a reflex, and I think all of us can score this kind of goal, at the moment you have the strength, power and mental reflex.

“Olivier is very good in front of goal on crosses, but I’ve never seen this type of goal from him.”
