Arsenal enjoyed a victory at Goodison Park for the first time in six years on Sunday afternoon and Jermaine Jenas was full of praise for the match winner, Leandro Trossard on Match of the Day 2.
The Gunners won the game through a narrow victory, after Leandro Trossard found the back of the net with a superb strike late in the second-half. The Belgian also walked away with the man of the match award despite not starting the game. Trossard was introduced in the first-half when Gabriel Martinelli appeared to have pulled his hamstring.
Leandro Trossard has been short of opportunities so far this season, however his man of the match performance against Everton gives Mikel Arteta another selection headache ahead of the Gunners return to the Champions League on Wednesday night.
Jermaine Jenas discussed Arsenal’s corner routine for the goal and singled out Trossard for praise: “This is exactly what they do here. Once that ball comes out to the edge of the box where they should have someone there, Everton are now on the move.
“This is where Arsenal are at their best – one and two-touch play. The finish from Trossard is absolutely sensational.”
Leandro Trossard signed for the Gunners in January for £21million and that fee is already looking like an absolute bargain following the amount of games he’s made the difference in during his short Arsenal career so far.
Martinelli’s injury will undoubtedly be a huge blow for Arsenal ahead of a busy week. But Trossard has stepped up for Arsenal when required over the past few months and he did so once again yesterday.
