Olivier Giroud opened and closed the scoring as Arsenal beat Stoke City 4-1 at the Britannia Stadium to push within a point of Liverpool for a top four spot.
Things started slowly for the Gunners but once Giroud got them going with a goal in the 42nd minute there were very few doubts about the outcome. Ten minutes after the halftime break Mesut Ozil's silky finish from an Alexis Sanchez through ball doubled the lead. Stoke City pulled a controversial goal back when Peter Crouch appeared to head a Marko Arnautovic cross home but actually used his hand to direct it past Petr Cech. The referee didn't see the hand ball and the goal stood. Stoke City poured on the pressure but an ailing Alexis Sanchez and then Olivier Giroud scored in the late going to end the contest.
