‘He’s been a revelation’: Martin Keown blown away by Arsenal star who made seven recoveries vs Wolves

Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown has heaped praise on Leandro Trossard following his sublime goal against Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Gunners entered the game following successive defeats, and they were under pressure to respond with three points to stay alive in the title race.

Mikel Arteta’s side struggled to find a cutting edge in the box for most of the opening half, but they eventually scored through Trossard in the 45th minute.

The Belgian sliced a first-time effort with his right foot which found the top right corner of the net off the woodwork. Keown was impressed by the goal.

Speaking on Premier League Productions, the former centre-back said that Trossard has been a revelation and looks value for money after another key contribution.

He said: “It’s a good play from Arsenal. There’s a suggestion maybe Jesus had received a foul there but he gets up quickly.

“He [Trossard] just swings a foot at it. He’s been a revelation since he came to club. Value for money? £27 million!”

Trossard had a lively game at Molineux. He had 41 touches, with eight of those in the box. He also won three duels while making seven ball recoveries.

The Belgian has been in and out of the starting line-up this season but has still remained a consistent performer. He is now enjoying his best-ever scoring campaign in the Premier League.

Arsenal were not at their best against Wolves, but they managed to get the job done. They had to work hard for the result as Martin Odegaard only made it 2-0 in the 95th minute.

The Gunners have temporarily returned to the top of the league standings and they have another testing challenge against Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night.

With Manchester City not in action until Thursday against Brighton & Hove Albion, the Gunners have an opportunity to extend their lead to four points before Pep Guardiola’s side travel to the south coast.
