Arsenal host bitter rivals Spurs, who are four points ahead of them in the table, on Saturday in the day's early kick-off.

Giroud, meanwhile, insists he has no regrets about staying at Arsenal despite finding appearances harder to come by this season.

He could have moved in the summer when Ronald Koeman was desperate to buy him for Evertonand was given permission to talk to the forward.

But Giroud opted to stay at the Emirates and insists he still has no desire to quit in January.

The 31-year-old insisted: “No, for the moment I am not questioning myself about my future.

“I am happy at Arsenal and I am fine with the decision to stay because I want to.

“I am thinking that the story between the club and myself is not over and not finished.

“I keep believing in my quality and I keep the faith. I have a lot of objectives with Arsenal and my country so I always try to move forward and keep scoring.”
