Giroud 'disappointed' despite EPL heroics

Press Association logoPress Association 3/01/2017

Olivier Giroud admitted Arsenal felt frustrated and disappointed despite coming back from three goals down to earn a last-gasp 3-3 draw at Bournemouth.

The France striker headed the leveller, adding to goals from Alexis Sanchez and Lucas Perez as the Gunners recovered from their awful start to the game.

Charlie Daniels and a Callum Wilson penalty put the hosts in control and they got a third through Ryan Fraser soon after the break.

Bournemouth had Simon Francis sent off at 3-2 and the 10 men were made to pay.

Not that Giroud was feeling too buoyant after the game.

"It's a shame we conceded three goals like that," he said on Sky Sports 1. "We should not have done these kinds of mistakes.

"It's very frustrating and hopefully we'll learn from our mistakes today.

"I'm still a bit disappointed. It's nice to be back in that game, but the way we played at the end when we were 11 against 10 made me think we should have done better.

"But at least we came back and showed great mental strength."

Aaron Ramsey was on the receiving end of the strong challenge from Francis which resulted in the Bournemouth captain seeing red.

"The tackle was a bit rash," said the Wales midfielder.
