Top five: Most overrated Premier League stars (3)

Published Add your comment

4. Olivier Giroud

Sorry Arsenal fans, you have a second player on the most overrated list.

Giroud has had to lead the Arsenal line since the departure of Robin van Persie last season, and although his goal tally season was quite impressive for a first season, he will not become a star without any backup

His games against Manchester City, Manchester United and Dortmund, all showed how ineffective he can be, as his hold-up play is quite lackluster.

The French striker's going to need to improve his ball control and his finishing if Arsenal fans are to entrust him with their title chances.

He is no van Persie, Dennis Bergkamp, or Thierry Henry, and without a plan B (Bendtner doesn't count) teams will find him more predictable as the seasons wear on.
