Leandro Trossard has not always looked like his normal self this season. In some games, he has appeared to be lacking an edge and accuracy that has become expected of him in an Arsenal shirt. Today was not one of those games.

The Belgian looked sharp both on and off the ball. Even when he did not end up receiving the ball, Trossard was often available in behind the Luton defence.

Trossard completed three out of four attempted dribbles as well as maintaining an 80% pass success rate. The Belgian won one four out of six ground duels and worked hard to help his team out in defence when the backline was stretched.

It was a game where on paper, a player of Trossard’s quality was expected to perform, but in this league that does not guarantee anything. It was a strong performance from the winger as he once again showed he can compete for a starting spot alongside Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli.
