3 Key Battles (Liverpool vs. Arsenal): Can Ozil Be Handled By Can?

2. Kolo Toure vs. Olivier Giroud

Liverpool’s defensive woes can’t seem to stop and Kolo Toure is the only fit central defender – though Mamadou Sakho might make it in time to play against Arsenal – and he would have to deal with a rejuvenated Olivier Giroud, which would not be an easy task for the Ivorian.

Giroud has scored 15 goals this season and is known to be the man who plays in the big occasions; Giroud could well be the one who does the damage for Arsenal. Giroud’s heading ability would be something that Liverpool’s defenders would have to be wary of and the French striker could well stab a dagger in the heart of the defence.
