Leandro Trosar, who was brought in after Arsenal failed to sign Mikhailo Mudrik, is playing a big role.
Arsenal defeated Fulham 3-0 in the 27th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Craven Cottage in London, England at 11:00 pm (Korean time) on the 12th. With this, Arsenal (66 points) maintained first place and maintained a five-point gap with second place Manchester City.
This match was a stage for Trossar. In the 21st minute of the first half, in a corner kick attack, Gabriel Magallyangs took the ball high from Trossar and scored the opening goal with a header shot. Arsenal did not stop there. In the 26th minute of the first half, Gabriel Martinelli headed the ball from Trosar again and scored an additional goal. 메이저놀이터
The first half put an end to the game. In the first half of extra time, another cross from Trossar was caught by Martin Odegaard in front of the goal, and he scored with a right-footed shot. Arsenal ended the first half with a 3-0 lead. Arsenal took a leisurely run in the second half and eventually won 3-0.
achieved the first record. Football statistics media ‘Opta’ focused on his performance, saying, “Trosa achieved a hat-trick of assists throughout the away game for the first time in EPL history.” According to Whoscored.com, a soccer statistics website, Trossar recorded a pass success rate of 79%, 2 shots, 1 dribble, 1 tackle and 3 assists. The media rated it 9.16, giving it the highest rating of the day.
Ironically, Trossar was not Arsenal’s first signing option. In the transfer market last winter, Arsenal staked their lives on signing Moudrik. However, Chelsea succeeded in hijacking and Arsenal failed to sign Moudrik. Arsenal urgently searched for alternative resources and brought Trosar for £27 million (approximately KRW 41.2 billion), including a transfer fee of £21 million (approximately KRW 32 billion) and a £6 million (approximately KRW 9.1 billion) add-on.
It makes a big difference in terms of price. Chelsea embraced Moudrik in a contract worth a whopping £88 million (approximately 140 billion won). However, the stat production of the two players is opposite. Mudrik has been recording 1 assist in 7 games in all competitions since the transfer. Trosar, on the other hand, has 1 goal and 5 assists in 10 games.
It’s a situation where I really have to say thank you to Chelsea. After the game, coach Mikel Arteta said: “He made three assists and scored two goals. I think he really impressed. He got injured three days ago and could have taken seven or ten days, but he wanted to come back early and , worked hard. It makes a huge difference to the team. We needed him and his contributions were great.”
