The Belgium international joined Arsenal in January from Brighton and Hove Albion for a reported £27 million fee.

Leandro Trossard believes Arsenal are up to the challenge of winning the Premier League and opened up on his ‘very busy and weird’ start at the club.

In his first 10 league games, Trossard has put away one goal and six assists. His seven-goal contribution has proven to be vital. It has helped Arsenal establish an eight-point lead over title rivals Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table.

“I maybe didn’t expect to make that many minutes, but injuries helped me a bit. I’m however more than convinced of my own capabilities,” Trossard said in a press conference on Wednesday.

“I arrived in a great group, filled with great players. That also makes it easier for new players to adapt and reach their levels. It was a very busy and weird period for me, but I’m very happy that I have been able to join Arsenal. I think it’s been a great step for me.

“We all know how difficult it is to win the league, looking at Man City and Liverpool in recent years, but I think we have a great squad and that we have proven time and time again that we’re doing well.

“There are 10 matches left, we’ll see where we end once the season finishes.”

Trossard is on international duty with the Belgium national team. He is preparing for Friday’s trip to Sweden for the opening game of their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign in Group F.
