Arsenal star Leandro Trossard could make Premier League history at Anfield as Arteta makes ‘crucial’ claim
Leandro Trossard could become the first away player in Premier League history to score for two different teams at Anfield in the same season if he nets for the Gunners on Sunday.
The forward joined Arsenal from Brighton in the January transfer window and has enjoyed a fine start to his career at the Emirates Stadium, scoring one goal and providing seven assists.
In the first half of the campaign, he netted seven times for Brighton as well as providing three assists. Three of those goals came as he scored a hat-trick in 3-3 draw at Anfield in October.
He had put the Seagulls 2-0 up before Liverpool hit back to make it 3-2 but Trossard rescued a draw for the visitors with his hat-trick seven minutes from time.
“It’s great to have a player that has experience of something really nice and positive from that stadium,” said Arteta of Trossard.
“He was a crucial player on that day, it was a beautiful game to watch and that’s what we need; players with a lot of belief on that pitch, that we can go there and win it.”
Bukayo Saka is poised to return to the starting line-up after being named on the bench for last weekend’s 4-1 victory over Leeds United due to illness.
Liverpool have failed to win a game since beating Manchester United 7-0 at Anfield, losing three matches in a row before drawing 0-0 with Chelsea in midweek.
Arteta added: “We have to fully embrace it and go for it. It’s a chance to go to Anfield and do something we haven’t done for many years.”
