Shearer: Trossard tore Fulham apart

13 Mar 2023

Premier League's record goalscorer hails Arsenal star following his hat-trick of assists

A virtuoso performance from Leandro Trossard inspired Arsenal's emphatic victory at Fulham, with the Belgian producing a hat-trick of assists in a 3-0 win for the Premier League leaders.

He set up Gabriel for the opening goal from a corner, before then producing crosses for Gabriel Martinelli and Martin Odegaard as the Gunners retained their five-point lead over Manchester City at the top of the table.

In becoming the first ever player to set up three goals in the first half of an away match, Trossard earned a place in the Team of the Week chosen by the Premier League's all-time top scorer Alan Shearer.

Gavin Bazunu (Southampton)
"His incredible stop from Bruno Fernandes was one of two big saves that helped Southampton earn a crucial point." 

Kyle Walker-Peters (Southampton)
"Manchester United struggled to handle his attacking play and he was very unfortunate not to have found a winner for Saints." 

James Tarkowski (Everton)
"He dealt with Ivan Toney very well - not many defenders can say that - to help Everton to a vital 1-0 win."

Gabriel (Arsenal)
"He loves a goal against Fulham doesn't he? That's now three goals against them."

Ben Chilwell (Chelsea)
"His volley for the opener showed excellent technique as Chelsea's upturn in form continued."

Dango Ouattara (AFC Bournemouth)
"He showed brilliant skill and composure to set up Philip Billing in the 1-0 win against Liverpool, before working hard to help Bournemouth defend that lead."

Rodri (Man City)
"His passing kept Man City on the front foot against Crystal Palace as he was rightly lauded by his manager Pep Guardiola."

Martin Odegaard (Arsenal)
"The Arsenal captain had the Fulham defence on strings for the third goal."

Leandro Trossard (Arsenal)
"The Belgian tore Fulham apart and was a constant threat throughout. He will have a big part to play in the title run-in."

Alexander Isak (Newcastle)
"What a brilliant header from the big man! And what a huge goal for Newcastle United."

Harry Kane (Spurs)
"The Tottenham Hotspur striker showed his class once again as he moved on to 20 Premier League goals for the season."

Manager: Gary O'Neil (AFC Bournemouth)
"His plan worked to perfection against Liverpool as they created very little against his side. What a superb display from his team."
