Is it time for Leandro Trossard to make his full Arsenal debut?
Many people were calling for Martinelli to be rested in order for the Belgian to start the Brentford game, but Arteta didn’t think it was the right decision. He was eventually introduced in that game, and four minutes later, he scored.
After the game, even Arteta admitted what a “livewire” Trossard was, saying: “I think every player has his moment. We have moved today Gabi for Leo because Leo in those spaces is so good and so composed. He’s constantly faking movements and playing forward.
“He’s got a great smell for where the ball is going to land, and we believe it was the right choice to bring him on.”
So, should Trossard make his debut against Manchester City?
Everyone has an opinion on whether Leandro Trossard should start or not, but I believe Trossard deserves to start against Manchester City, but he should replace Nketiah, who needs a rest. So Martinelli should start up top against City, with Trossard and Saka on the wings.
The trio (Saka, Trossard, and Martinelli) could keep Man City’s defence on its toes, and if it doesn’t work out, Arteta can easily introduce Nketiah as a substitute, but let’s be honest, Nketiah hasn’t helped Martinelli or Saka be at their best the way Jesus did.
Mikel Arteta needs to look into his attacking issues before things get out of hand; scoring one goal in two Premier League games is unusual for Arsenal this season. In any case, the Gunners remain the favorites to win the English Premier League, but they must work harder than ever before. Manchester City’s point differential is shrinking dramatically, which is not a good sign for the fans.
Let’s hope Arsenal can get back on track against Manchester City on Wednesday, with Trossard starting….

I don’t get why people want to start trossard up front – has he played there before? I’ve no doubt he could do well in odegaard’s position, but playing cf, when he’d have to challenge cbs with his back up goal, it’s a different thing entirely.
I think he should come in for martinelli – GM has been a bit off form recently, and trossard has looked really good with his limited opportunities.
I was envious of the way ETH rotated his squad at Leeds today. I don’t think we will sèe that on Wednesday, and understand why, but hopefully Arteta will start rotating a bit more soon. The likes of Tomiyasu, Tierney and Trossard need at least a few starts.
I suggest we start Martinelli, Trossard and Saka upfront.. I feel Trossard is a similar player to Jesus. We need his trickery at the peak. And since he can play in all three positions upfront, I see him combining well with Martinelli and Saka.
I consider it a racing certainty that Trossard will start against City in placeof MARTINELLI.
I CERTAINLY HOPE SO.
Although I would include Tomi and Tierney for the other two full backs, I see neither starting , more is the pity!
I would also play Jorginho in place of Xhaka, but not a hope of that happening either, IMO.
THER COMES A TIME WHEN THE VIRTUES OF KEEPING A SETTLED ELEVEN ARE OUTWEIGHED BY LOSS OF FORM AND THR NEED FOR REFRESHMENTS.
