Journalist compares Trossard to former Arsenal great

Leandro Trossard has been in superb form since he moved to Arsenal in the last transfer window.

The Belgian has been one of England’s finest attackers over the years since his time at Brighton.

He was not Arsenal’s first choice, with the Gunners only turning to him after failing to land Mykhailo Mudryk, who chose to move to Chelsea.

Trossard made three assists in Arsenal’s game against Fulham yesterday, setting a record with that performance.

Sami Mokbel of Mailonline has now compared the attacker to former Arsenal star Santi Cazorla.

He writes in his column:

“Six direct goal contributions in five starts since arriving from Brighton in January is the definition of hitting the ground running.

“He became the first player in Premier League history to provide three assists before half-time in an away game on Sunday, setting up goals for Gabriel, Gabriel Martinelli and Martin Odegaard as the Gunners cantered home to a 3-0 victory at Fulham.

“His match-winning contribution saw Trossard become the first player since Santi Cazorla in the 2012-13 season to have recorded a hat-trick of goals and hat-trick of assists in a single Premier League campaign after his three goals against Liverpool when playing for Brighton in October.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Trossard was sensational in the game against Fulham and we need him to continue to deliver such terrific performances now.

The Belgian has adapted well to the team and seems to be the ideal fit for our system and this means we can expect more top-level performances from him before the season ends.

  1. What a signing considering his price tag and no time needed to get his feet wet.

    Surely he got to start against Crystal Palace on Sunday.

    We should start the strongest side possible against Palace, due to the importance of this game, would select my team early in my mind and drill them for this encounter, it’s a London derby and forms go out the window.
    The team sheet should read as follows : –


    Vieira has taken some notable scalps in the pass but nothing less than three points is acceptable from the league leader.

    1. Somehow I feel against any top 6 team, Trossard should be in for Xhaka as a box to box CM,

      White. Saliba. Gabriel. Zinchenko

      Odegaard. Partey. Trossard

      Saka. Jesus. Martineli.

      With this we could push city and Liverpool back,

      1. Trossard has his mind best working as either false 9 or the wings..u appoint him midfield,,he will try but wouldn’t be at his Xhaka remains the best unless we sign caicedo or Declan Rice..or even ward prowse if soton are going under.

  2. Very early days to compare him with Santi, but such a great signing nevertheless.
    What is even more important than comparing old to new, is that he will give MA the chance to rest our younger players when Jesus is back to full fitness (Martinelli and Saka for example).
    I wonder what his value is today, certainly a lot more than what The Arsenal paid for him.

    1. TROSSARD. JESUS. SAKA.💥 I am awaiting this combo. Putting emotions
      aside, Trossard is a level above Marty but that doesn’t make him a bad footballer abruptly; it is what it is. 🤔

  3. Arsenal Should Go For This Lazio Midfielder Sergej Milinkovic Savic. He Will Come At A Cheaper Price To Declan Rice And Moises Caicedo With More Experience Due To His Age.

  4. Trossard should be given a contract in arsenal for the rest of all seasons I like the talent
