Leandro Trossard impresses in full debut as Arsenal lose FA Cup tie to City

As Roy Keane praises the Belgian forward

Arsenal new boy Leandro Trossard was impressive in his full debut for Arsenal as the league leaders suffered a 1-0 defeat to Manchester City in a cup game on Friday.

The Belgian forward who joined Arsenal from Brighton & Hove Albion last week showed the Gunners why their club splashed £27 million to sign him.

It was his second game but his full debut for the Gunners after playing 9 minutes in Arsenal’s 3-2 win against Manchester United last Sunday.

Leandro Trossard was direct when he had to, took on Manchester City defenders, created chances, and did the job at the left flank so much that he was praised by Arsenal fans.

Manchester United great, Roy Keane also joined in giving accolades to the Belgian winger.

“He’s (Trossard) only been at the club for a few weeks but he already looks like an Arsenal type of player,” said Roy Keane on ITV.
