Leandro Trossard has set a new Premier League record in Arsenal’s recent win over Fulham at Craven Cottage. The Gunners’ fans are thrilled with their January signing, who continues to make his mark in the club’s title push. Trossard spent his first few games coming off the bench, but he is now making a significant impact on the team.
During the game against Fulham, Trossard registered a stunning hat-trick of assists in the first half. Opta revealed that it is the first time a player has managed three assists in the opening 45 minutes of an away game in the history of the Premier League. Trossard also became the first player since former Arsenal star Santi Carzola a decade ago to grab a hat-trick of goals and a hat-trick of assists in the same season following his goal spree at Anfield in October for Brighton.
Arsenal fans were left raving about their record-maker on Twitter as they strolled to victory in west London. One fan said that Trossard is a “special, special player.” Another fan said that he is the “best Premier League January signing ever.” While another excited fan added that Trossard has “one goal and five assists so far (could have two goals if not due to a wrong VAR decision). What a signing.”
The Gunners only went after Trossard after missing out on Mykhailo Mudryk, who moved to Chelsea instead of Arsenal. However, the 28-year-old is having a far bigger impact so far as Arsenal looks to escape Manchester City’s clutches in the title race.
Trossard’s first assist came as he whipped a ball into the box from a corner to find the head of Gabriel. He then bamboozled Tete with sharp footwork before standing the ball up at the far post to find Gabriel Martinelli. Just before half-time, the Belgian once again slipped down the left and found a cross, with this one controlled and then slashed home by Martin Odegaard.
In conclusion, Leandro Trossard has made an incredible impact on Arsenal’s title push. His hat-trick of assists in the first half against Fulham set a new Premier League record, and he continues to impress fans with his skills on the field. With Trossard on their side, Arsenal has a better chance of winning the title this season.
