Leandro Trossard, an Arsenal star, was displeased that he didn’t get the start against Everton on Sunday, according to Alan Shearer.
Shearer discussed Arsenal’s weekend victory against Everton on The Rest Is Football Podcast.
More than the 1-0 score indicates, Mikel Arteta’s team dominated at Goodison Park.
Despite not producing many clear-cut chances, Arsenal controlled much of the ball and kept Everton at bay.
Gabriel Martinelli appeared to have given the Gunners the lead, but the goal was disallowed due to offside during the buildup.
After the goal was ruled offside, the Brazilian hobbled off injured, and he might now miss the North London derby.
Leandro Trossard took his position, but Alan Shearer has said that he was angry because he wasn’t getting the start.
The £27 million attacker demonstrated on Sunday why he should start games far more frequently.
Having excellent ball control, he propelled Arsenal ahead and eventually scored the game-winning goal in the second half.
Trossard was displeased not to be starting out, according to Shearer
Shearer stated, in reference to Mikel Arteta’s selection conundrum: “Well, that’s the problem managers face with squads the size that they are now.
“We spoke with [Leandro] Trossard at Arsenal after the game yesterday, and I asked him that question because you could sense he was upset.
“As a football player, do you now have to accept that you’ll be rotated in a huge team?
“You might participate in a Saturday game before taking a weekend off. To be left out, I would have despised that beyond belief.
The choice to switch Aaron Ramsdale in goal for David Raya was the main topic of discussion prior to the game.
The only other alteration made after their victory over Manchester United was Kai Havertz being removed from the team, although this distracted from that.
Leandro Trossard is currently vying for a starting spot as well, and Shearer thinks he was disappointed to be left out at Goodison Park.
When Arsenal returns to the Champions League tomorrow against PSV Eindhoven, everyone at the club will be fighting for a spot in the squad.
The Belgian has undoubtedly done enough to merit a spot on the roster.
