Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has played down fears about the injury he picked up against Sunderland.
The striker hobbled off late on in the game and Arsene Wenger confessed he was worried about losing the only out-and-out striker in his squad.
But the Frenchman, who has scored in every league game so far this season, has revealed he should be fit for the Gunners' crucial Champions League opener against Marseille on Wednesday.

Santi Cazorla has been ruled out until mid October by Wenger, but asked about the extent of his own knock, Giroud said: 'It is not bad actually, not as bad as I first feared. I got a kick earlier in the game but no-one was near me when I did it this time.
'I tried to connect with the ball a little bit too early and I caught my foot in the grass. I twisted my ankle but fortunately, it is nothing major.
'I am OK, sure I will be fine [for Marseille].'
Giroud had to contend with the fact he was signed just after the departure of Robin van persie at the Emirates last summer, and his form dipped at times last year.
But he has started fantastically this time around, and is certain he will be helped further with the players around him, including a certain 42.5million German, who made his debut at the Stadium of Light.

'This is the best run I have had since I joined Arsenal and I think it is also my best form too.
'And now that we have our new player, it can get even better.
'We knew all about his [Ozil's] quality but when you are out there on the pitch, playing with him, he is even better.
'He is always looking for opening and sees things so early while his first touch is simply amazing. You can see immediately that he is going to make this team better. But let's face it, with his quality, he would make any team in the world better.
'Not every striker is lucky enough to have players like Ozil, Aaron [Ramsey],Jack [Wilshere],Theo [Walcott] and [Santi] Cazorla behind them. I feel very fortunate.'
Arsenal head to the Stade Veledrome to face Marseille knowing that a result is needed, with Napoli and Dortmund also in their tough group.
