Leandro Trossard has joined Arsenal to mainly become an alternative to Gabriel Martinelli and has started his spell brightly.
He benched the Brazilian when the Gunners faced Aston Villa in their last league game, although Martinelli came on and scored their final goal in a 4-2 win.
This means Mikel Arteta now has a major selection headache, but it is one that he would love as his side battles hard to end this season with the Premier League title.
Martinelli is a crowd favourite at the Emirates, but Trossard comes into the team as one of the finest players in the league and has a point to prove.
The Premier League website has now compared their impact in the last three games where Trossard has been involved for the Gunners.
Both have a goal each in the last three league games for the Gunners, but Trossard takes a shot per 39 minutes, while Martinelli does so every 56 minutes.
The Belgian also creates a chance every 52 minutes, which is better than Martinelli’s per 56 minutes.
Just Arsenal Opinion
This shows that Trossard has generally been good value for money in the few matches he has played so far and we can back the attacker to continue doing well for us in the remaining games of the season.

I prefer Martinellii, who is currently being frozen out by Zivchenko hogging the ball. Trossard would be much better utilised as a penalty box poacher. On the wing he is easily boxed in and doesn’t make anything happen.
Martinelli needs the little break he has been awesome for us this season, the introduction of Tossard was necessary in my opinion and he seems to be smart or just sheer experience.
Think Tossard may had have just enough time to study how effective he can be in this Arsenal team on the bench, as he is lively and certainly looks like he has somthing to prove.
Two things observed from Tossard is he does not overly rely on his technical abilities and get bogged down, he releases the ball quicker and seems to be unpredictable.
But somthing tells me Martinelli will be deadly when fully rested alongside the return of his countryman Jesus to their old stamping ground.
Trossard wing, Martinelli you replace Eddie
Both have been average so far because of zinchecko’s style of play. No attacking winger can succeed with zinchecko as the left back.
Arteta should instruct zinchecko to do his basic job or bench him foe tierny.
Arteta instructs Zinchenko to play how he does. He plays to get into midfield and not support Martinelli. It is a pep and arteta thing. Arteta doesn’t play Tierney because he want to play as a traditional right back.
Interesting stats. I think they are telling us Trossard would take more shots and create more assists if played more centrally – false 9, or central Midfield.
Kindly substitute Trosard with Nketiya for Trosard looks to be more of a striker than a winger.
