Leandro Trossard Opens Up on Arsenal ‘Struggles’ After Propelling Gunners to Victory Over Manchester United

Arsenal didn’t exhibit their typical free-flowing style, yet they secured a 1-0 victory against Manchester United at Old Trafford, ensuring that the Premier League title race will extend to the final day.

Arsenal’s match-winner, Leandro Trossard, admits that the Gunners faced difficulties in their crucial 1-0 victory over Manchester United.

29-year-old Trossard secured the only goal of the match, propelling Arsenal to a 1-0 triumph at Old Trafford.

This outcome reinstates their position at the summit of the Premier League table, setting the stage for an intense title race finale.

Despite the victory, Mikel Arteta’s squad encountered resistance, with United presented with numerous opportunities to salvage a draw or snatch a win.

After the final whistle, to Arsenal’s relief, Trossard acknowledged in a succession of post-match interviews that the Gunners didn’t perform at their peak.

“Maybe it wasn’t the prettiest game but credit to the guys, we defended so well. We kept another clean sheet and one goal is enough to win the game,” the Belgian forward told BBC Sport.

“We were struggling a little bit so it was so nice to get the win. When you’re only 1-0 up it is always a bit tricky. We were trying to score a second but they are dangerous on the counter attack. It is a great run for us and now we take it to the final game. You never know what is going to happen.”

Our sole aim is to clinch the league title. Today, we executed our plan, and our focus is now on the final game, where we aim to secure victory.

“Hopefully next week we can celebrate something, you never know it could be. We can only hope. We have done our job and that is the only thing we could have done.”
