Stat proves Trossard should start more games for Arsenal

Leandro Trossard scored one of Arsenal’s goals in their 5-0 victory over Crystal Palace this afternoon, justifying his inclusion ahead of Gabriel Martinelli in the starting lineup.

The Belgian faced challenges in displacing Martinelli when he joined the club in the second half of last season, but he consistently proves his worth as a top player when given the chance.

While the spotlight often falls on the performances of players like Bukayo Saka, Trossard’s contribution to the team should not be overlooked. According to the BBC, he has now been involved in 11 goals from 14 games in all competitions at the Emirates this season, making him one of Arsenal’s most productive players.

Mikel Arteta appears to be pleased with Trossard’s contributions, and considering his recent form, we could see more of him in the second half of the season.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Trossard has been in fine form for us and this stat is not such a big surprise.

The Belgian has become one of the fans’ favourites at the Emirates, and we expect him to keep thriving under the watchful eyes of Arteta.

But Martinelli’s brace will give the gaffer a dilemma ahead of his next selection.

  1. Think you are using the stats wrongly here, as the Belgian always prove more deadly coming off the bench.

    But the gaffer got his game plan spot on against a normally organized Roy Hodgson outfit.

  2. Trossard is one of our players that deserve more time through rotation. Our players must be confident that they are inclusive in Arteta project in order to give their best

  3. All we are advocating is rotation. Arteta should rotate his squad more often. Let him rest Saka or better still, allow him come from the bench until he gets the required rest he needed.
    When other players including some academies who have proven themselves are given opportunities then, you will realize that the team has quality. Am happy the coach has started listening by making prompt changes and rotating. Also, am happy to see ESR given the chance to display his talent.

  4. Stats require context. I’m sure he’s had a lot of his goal contributions coming from the bench. I think the stats prove just the opposite-that he’s an excellent option from the bench. Trossard may have had a good game against Palace but he’s also had bad games when starting this season. He’s been most useful as a sub in my opinion.

  5. There is no reason why there cannot be a Saka – Trossard – Martinelli rotation to allow rest for these players (until we can identify a decent back up for Saka)
    Its telling that Ivan Toney is now only two goals behind Jesus despite this being his first game back from his ban.
    Says everything about why we need a top class striker..

  6. I just want to see him block out a few more 6’4″ players on corners like he did with Joachim Andersen on both of Gabriel’s goals. He’s a lot tougher than he looks, lol.
