Trossard says he knew where Saka was going to send the “perfect ball” for Arsenal’s equaliser at Chelsea

Leandro Trossard’s goal against Chelsea on Saturday extended Arsenal’s unbeaten streak to 9 games. Just six minutes before full time, the Belgian who had only been on the field for a few minutes, found the back of the net, tapping the ball into the far corner after catching Chelsea defenders sleeping (they failed to track his run).

The London derby ended 2-2, with Arsenal scooping up a point at Stamford Bridge. Trossard has spoken out following his heroics on Saturday. Among the numerous things he has said on is that this could be the tightest title race ever, claiming the race will finish close at the end of the season: “Obviously, there are a lot of teams who have strengthened their squads, and it will be a close call at the end.

“But it is still early on, and we need to take it game-by-game and try to win every game.”

About what he thought of the game, he admitted, “At the end, if you are 2-0 down, then you are happy to take a point away.

“But we also know that we can do better and need to take that with us to the next game.

“Well done to the boys. They never let their heads go down and kept believing. You can see you only need one moment to change a game. I knew when Bukayo (Saka) put it on his left foot that I had to make the run.

“We spoke about it in training, and it was the perfect ball, and I knew I had to make contact, and it was a great goal.”

Arteta and the boys were looking to only rival the defending champions, Manchester City, for the league title, but it now appears that Spurs and Liverpool should also be considered threats. However, labeling them a threat doesn’t help; the Gunners just need to focus on themselves, pick up maximum points every time they play, and be in a better position when the other teams drop points.

  1. If your truly look at that ball, you will actually realize that Trossard knew what Saka would do, hence the anticipation.

  2. When the player senses that a fellow teammate is going to put the ball, it works excellently for the entire time.
