Giroud could be out three months

The ESPN FC team discuss Manchester United's start to the season, Arsenal's comeback, Liverpool's defense and QPR's relegation chances.

Olivier Giroud is set to be on the sidelines for the next three months after scans revealed he broke a bone his foot against Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday, according to a report in France.

L'Equipe are reporting that the results of the scan on Giroud's foot have come back with the news Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger feared, sparking speculation that he may now be forced to dip into the transfer market to bolster his forward line.

Wenger has repeatedly insisted he would not consider signing an additional forward in this transfer window, with his belief that new signing Alexis Sanchez, and the soon to return Theo Walcott and Yaya Sanogo offer him enough attacking options to resist a move.

He had also stated his desire to throw the weight of support behind Giroud and suggested after his last gasp equaliser at Goodison Park that he could finish this season with 25 Premier League goals.

If the reports of his foot injury are confirmed, those plans may have to be amended, with Arsenal's injury issues arising yet again a couple of weeks into the new season.

Giroud's injury may force Wenger to consider a move for Queens Park Rangers striker Loic Remy, even though he turned down the chance to sign the Frenchman earlier this summer.
