Great Expectations

Can Leandro Trossard build on his debut FPL season and dodge the Brighton rotation?

Just before the start of the 2019/20 season, Brighton and Hove Albion signed Leandro Trossard (£6.0m) for a fee of around £15m.

I was very excited: he had just come off the back of the best season of his career, registering 14 goals and seven assists for Genk as they won the Belgian top flight.

His skilful playstyle and favoured position on the left wing combined with his Belgian nationality inevitably drew comparisons to the departing Eden Hazard.

Trossard tried to distance himself from the hype, but I couldn’t help but think we had pulled off a real coup.

The player said about himself:

I like one against ones. I’m quite fast, turning. I hope I can show you so you know how my style is.

Now reflecting on Trossard’s first season in the Premier League, I’ve been left a bit disappointed, both by Trossard’s overall performances (bar a couple of decent goals and display) and how I feel Potter has used him throughout the campaign.

I’m going to use this article to take a look at Trossard in more detail and hopefully, give a bit more insight into how I expect Albion to line up next season – and who (if any) of the Brighton boys we should be considering for our 2020/21 squads.

      Interesting... GW5 on looks great

      Not for me - hasn't strung decent minutes together for years. Much better options for 4.5m

    I think I'm done. In reality, I'll keep changing it all night and up until the deadline

    McCarthy
    TAA, Doherty, Vinagre, Johnson
    Auba (c), Son, ASM
    Werner, Ings, Mitro

    Nyland, Ferguson, Greenwood, Foden

    1.5 ITB to do Auba & Son -> KDB & Bruno GW3

    (I believe Messi will stay at Barca)

      1 ITB* meaning I have to do them both for GW3 (optimistically assuming I won't want to change anything else)

      Who is Johnson?

      The team looks solid. Mitro might be better as a wait and see though

      Looks good - I'd be tempted to dfrop ASM to Soucek and bump Johnson or Ferguson up by .5m.

      I wouldn't keep a Spurs RB for 6.0.

    Lads, would you please tell me how does it look?

    Lloris
    TAA, Saiss, KWP, Lascelles / 4.0
    Salah, Auba, Armstrong, Soucek / Bruno
    Werner, Mitro

  4. Champions League Varane

    What do we think?

    McCarthy Steer
    Trent Lamptey Vinagre C.Taylor KWP (whole defence has great rotation.)
    Salah Auba ASM Periera Anguissa
    Kane Werner Mitrovic

    How’s this looking so far...

    McCarthy
    TAA Vinagre Saliba
    Salah Auba Ziyech Son ASM
    Werner Mitrovic

    Nyland; Taylor Mitchell Davis

    Then by GW4 I intend to have...

    McCarthy
    TAA Vinagre Saliba
    Salah KDB Bruno Greenwood ASM
    Werner Mitrovic

    Who do you reckon are the best 4.5 defenders outside of Vinagre?

    1. JURGENAUT
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Saliba
      Taylor
      KWP

  7. JURGENAUT

    Mitro ownership above 30%....
