We've seen the impact that 6ft 4in Frenchman Olivier Giroud has had on matches in the Premier League this season. The target man displays an incredible amount of presence on the field and particularly in the box. Arsenal's striker leads you through the golden rules for leading the line.
Protect with your body
"Physical strength is very important. Figure out whether or not you have somebody behind you and get your body in the right position to hold off the defender and control the ball. The more you practice this, the better you'll get to know how to play using your body. However, your control of the ball is the most important thing. With a good touch you can slow the game down. Don't ignore the hard work you need to do in front of goal as well. The more shots you take, the more goals you will score."
Timing is everything
"Winning headers is not about pushing the opponent out of the way; it's all about getting your timing right when you jump. Before the ball comes to you, know where you are positionally, know where the defender is and most importantly know where your teammates are, so you can divert the ball towards them. I'm a goalscorer, but I'm a creator as well, and I like that part of the game. I'm an unselfish forward. Playing this way worked well at Montpellier when I had Younes Belhanda alongside me."
Devise a plan of attack
"You have to work with your wide players in training so they know what runs you're going to make. Normally, if the crosser gets to the line, he'll send it to the front post, and if it's a cross from deeper it goes to the back post. But if I make a run between the front post and the defender, that means he should aim for the near post. It's important that you and your teammates agree on the strategy in training. At Montpellier I worked on this with [wide players] Garry Bocaly and Henri Bedimo all the time."
