Leandro Trossard was forced off early in the game against the MLS All-Stars last time out through injury.

The Belgian winger scored expertly in the first-half for Arsenal as he struck a powerful shot from outside the box into the top corner. However he was substituted early in the second-half through injury.

Trossard also picked up a knock against FC Nurnberg in Germany the week before where Mikel Arteta admitted the forward was struggling after the game. However the 28-year-old got over that knock to play against the MLS All-Stars and it appears he’s done the same for the game tonight again Manchester United.

Mikel Arteta revealed in his press conference before the game on Saturday night that Leandro Trossard was back in full first-team training and he’s fit for the game against Manchester United in New Jersey.

It’s great news for the Belgian as he looks to continue building on the good form he’s produced so far during Arsenal’s 2023/24 pre-season. Trossard most likely isn’t in Mikel Arteta’s first-choice side, but if he keeps putting in good performances then he’ll definitely be knocking on the door for more starts this season.

With Champions League football back at the Emirates Stadium for the first time in seven years this season, Mikel Arteta will most likely rotate his squad much more often than we saw last season, which can only be good news for players like Leandro Trossard.

Leandro Trossard scored one goal and assisted ten times in his 22 appearances for the Gunners last season, after he moved to North London in January. It was a great return for a player who only played half a season and you’d expect much more of the same during the 2023/24 campaign with the player entering the prime of his career.
