Leandro Trossard deserves to start
The Belgian striker always performs at a better level every time he is given the opportunity. And in a deadlocked match for the Gunners against Burnley’s well-organized defense, he was the key to opening the match with a courageous goal.
Even though he knew he might get injured when he collided with the post, Trossard still ignored it to help Arsenal open the score.
Next, when the away team brought the match back to the starting line, Trosard continued to make his mark with a corner kick that found William Saliba’s position, helping the midfielder score.
Trossard is only considered the second or third choice as a center forward. However, the quality that the former Brighton star brings is actually better than Eddie Nketiah.
Therefore, in the upcoming period, Mikel Arteta should consider giving Trossard the opportunity to play more, instead of using Nketiah.
In the last match, in addition to the case of Jesus, Arsenal also lacked a series of important names such as Martin Odegaard, Ben White or Thomas Partey. However, they still got what they needed.
With the additions of personnel and the rapid progress of the young stars, Mikel Arteta is now easier to manage when the pillars are injured.
Although Kai Havertz or Takehiro Tomiyasu cannot completely replace the players who created the framework under Mikel Arteta, they still know how to complete their tasks well to help the club maintain its usual controlled style of play.
After the recruitment campaign, it is expected that some stars will recover and Arsenal will become even stronger to continue writing their own dream.
The Ukrainian player has lost a lot of form recently. But in the Burnley confrontation, he reaffirmed his value with a standard performance.
Not only is he solid in defense (14 successful duels, 5 tackles), he also actively participates in ball circulation (2 key passes, 94 passes and long pass rate). absolute success). Besides, Zinchenko also scored the match-winning goal.
Zinchenko’s role at Arsenal was already clearly established when he moved to the Emirates. The important thing is that the former Man City star will need to maintain stability in each match because he is almost the only option at the free left-back position, after Jurrien Timber got injured.
