Striker Olivier Giroud has challenged his Arsenal team-mates to maintain their "hunger" as they aim to enjoy a successful end to the season.

The in-form France striker netted a brace for the second time in a week as Arsenal beat Brighton 3-2 in their FA Cup fourth-round tie at the Amex Stadium and he wants the Gunners to take that effort into every game as they chase a top-four place in the Barclays Premier League.

He said: "We didn't start the game as we wanted because we didn't put in a good commitment and not really enough determination. I play better not when I am angry, but with determination, this is very important in football. When you don't have the hunger you can't play very well and succeed. You need it."
