Although Arsenal’s Leandro Trossard is happy to see Gabriel Jesus return, he insists that Jesus won’t be taking his starting position without a fight.
LEANDRO TROSSARD has warned Gabriel Jesus that he will fight for a starting spot at Arsenal if the club wants to win the Premier League.
After joining the team for £21 million in January from Brighton, the forward quickly became an integral part of the winning side.
After having knee surgery, Trossard claims he was once again coerced into fighting for Mikel Arteta, but he is happy to see the Lord back.
Trossard made history on Sunday, becoming the first player in Premier League history with three assists in the first half of an away game, a 3-0 victory over Fulham.
Jesus, a Brazilian striker, came on for the Belgian after he had been injured during the World Cup.
Trossard, who is now 28 years old, clarified, “It’s not that I went into the starting XI from the first week. In order to get it, I had to struggle.
The level of competition is extremely high, and we have such a strong team.
The last few games have shown how important each player is to our team’s success. That’s the crux of the matter.
Everyone on the team has made me feel welcome and at home. Even the manager was extremely helpful.
I’m a tactical player, and they’re all great with the ball, so it’s a good fit.

Jesus’ return helps Arteta’s squad, who have won five straight Premier League games after suffering a 3-1 home defeat to title rivals Manchester City.
On Thursday, Arsenal will host Sporting Lisbon in the second leg of their Europa League round of 16 matchup, and on Sunday, they will take on Crystal Palace.
Trossard praised Jesus’ return and said, “He is such a top player. As a result of his influence, everyone on the team performs better. In other words, his return is very welcome.
