Leandro Trossard establishes new record in Premier League history as Arsenal‘s comfortable win vs Fulham strengthens Mikel Arteta‘ team‘s title win dream

Arsenal’s new midfielder Leandro Trossard has made a new record in the Premier League as the English club comfortably won against Fulham. The win is a major boost for Mikel Arteta’s side who are looking to win the Premier League. 

Arsenal managed to reclaim a five-point lead over title rivals Manchester City and are at the top of the Premier League table by gaining a 3-0 victory away at Fulham last Sunday.

The game got off to a good start when Gabriel Magalhaes scored a header in the 21st minute from a Leandro Trossard corner. Just five minutes later, Trossard again has an assist when Gabriel Martinelli scored a header. Right before halftime, Martin Ødegaard scored the third goal when he receives the ball from Leonardo and proceeded to curl the ball into the bottom corner.

Trossard assisting three times meant he is the first player in the history of the Premier League to have a hat trick of assists within the first half of a game. He is also the second player to have a hat trick of assists this season after Roberto Firmino in Liverpool’s 9-0 demolishing of Bournemouth earlier this season. He was given the Man of the Match award for his standout performance.

Speaking with Sky Sports regarding his new achievement, “I’m really happy with it as well. I always try to contribute with goals and assists and help the team going forward and today it went my way. I’m just really happy that we won and we can go forward from this.”

Trossard has now proven his worth at Arsenal already with five assists in just nine games. The Belgian joined in the January transfer window for £27 million from Brighton after their main target Mykhaylo Mudryk joined Chelsea instead of them. He scored seven goals in 16 appearances for Brighton in the first half of the season including scoring a hat trick against Liverpool at Anfield.

Arteta’s side is now just 11 games away from winning the first Premier League title in 19 years. They have played amazing football this season under the Spanish coach and have 66 points in just 27 games.

Their only real opponent at the moment is Manchester City who trails by five points and will be looking to cut that gap in the next games leading to a mega clash between the title race rivals on April 27.
