Frenchman has scored 10 goals for Arsene Wenger's team this season
Olivier Giroud returns to the Arsenal starting XI to face Everton this afternoon, replacing Nicklas Bendtner up front. The Dane, who is back on the bench, had made his first Premier League start for the Gunners since 2011 in the 2-0 victory over Hull City on Wednesday and opened the scoring.

Roberto Martinez sticks with the same team that defeated Manchester United 1-0 at Old Trafford in the week, their first win at Old Trafford in 21 years.
Arsenal: Szczesny, Jenkinson, Koscielny, Mertesacker, Gibbs; Arteta, Wilshere; Ramsey, Ozil, Cazorla; Giroud
Everton: Howard; Coleman, Jagielka, Distin, Oviedo; Barry, McCarthy; Mirallas, Barkley, Pienaar; Lukaku
