Arsene Wenger has praised Joel Campbell and Olivier Giroud after the pair contributed this week to a famous European victory.
Giroud got his first Arsenal hat-trick while the Costa Rican forward was instrumental in the win with a brilliant assist for the second Arsenal strike.
The Arsenal manager was quick to give props to Campbell who is making the most of the chance afforded to him because of injuries.
“He shows slowly, game by game, that he has the talent to do it,” he said.
“If you look at his numbers since he played, you look at the number of goals he has scored and the number of assists he has given, you can say it is much better than people think it is.
“The other night, the ball he gives for the second goal absolutely shows that there is something special in him.
“On top of that I think he is a guy who puts his body on the line for the team. He works really hard. He is not only a player who shows talent but he is a guy who puts a shift in for the team.”
And on Giroud, Wenger said, “If you look at the number of games and the number of goals, you have to give him credit. He’s not only a goalscorer, he’s a guy who puts work in for the team. I think he’s among the best strikers in Europe.
“I believe recently he has come back with an improved game and with his finishing. Wednesday was one of his best performances on all fronts, I must say. If you look at his record, I believe he has special qualities that are difficult to find.”
