Preston North End 1-2 Arsenal: FA Cup match report

Giroud has now scored or assisted six of Arsenal's last eight goals.

The Gunners came from behind and snatched a last-gasp 2-1 victory to avoid frustration in their FA Cup third-round tie at Championship side Preston on Saturday.

And it could have been so much worse for Arsenal as Preston spurned a number of gilt-edged chances to put the game to bed inside 45 minutes.

"We were not in the game in the first half and we obviously wanted to be in the second half and show some character".

"I named him captain, I like to rotate the captaincy".

Arsenal's defending was shambolic in the first half, Shkodran Mustafi in particular giving the ball away with alarming regularity, and the score could easily have been three or four-nil.

They improved after the break though and after Aaron Ramsey had scored his first goal of the season a minute after the restart the visitors looked the more likely winners.

Match victor Giroud said: "We wanted to start the game better than last time out against Bournemouth".

His phenomenal form for Dundalk earned him a transfer to Preston North End, where he joined compatriots Andy Boyle, who also made the switch from Dundalk, Aiden McGeady, Eoin Doyle, Alan Browne and fellow Galwegian Greg Cunningham.

"I think I had a hesitation". "We were outpaced, they played with desire, enthusiasm and quality and they gave us many problems".

Grayson said: "It was hard to speak to the players after the game and know what to say".

Preston manager Simon Grayson felt the least his side deserved was a replay.

"Every time we were in trouble and overall they played in a very intelligent way". Preston were never that far in front, though they could have been, and Arsène Wenger did not beat about the bushwhen asked if he had given his players a rocket at half-time. "We were unlucky at the end with the goal but it was a pretty even game".
