He completed his hat-trick of assists in additional time of the first half, helping captain Martin Odegaard to his 10th Premier League goal of the season and Arsenal’s third against Fulham.
Trossard reaches Premier League milestone
In assisting Odegaard’s goal, Trossard wrote his name in the history books, becoming the first player in Premier League history to assist three goals in the first half of an away match.
