LEANDRO TROSSARD set a new Premier League record against Fulham in Arsenal’s dominant win at Craven Cottage.
Gunners fans are gushing over their January signing after he continued to make his mark in the club’s title push.
Having initially spent his first few games coming off the bench, the former Brighton man is now often in the starting XI.
And he made his impact felt at the Cottage as he registered a hat-trick of assists in the first half.
Opta revealed that it is the first time a player has managed three assists in the opening 45 of an away game in the history of the Premier League.
He also became the first player since former Arsenal star Santi Carzola a decade ago to grab a hat-trick of goals and a hat-trick of assists in the same season following his goal spree at Anfield in October for Brighton.
Arsenal fans were left raving about their record-maker on Twitter as they strolled to victory in west London.
One said: “Special, special player.”
Another said: “Best Premier League January signing ever.”
While another excited fan added: “One goal and five assists so far (could have two goals if not due to a wrong VAR decision).

“What a signing.”
The Gunners are believed to have only gone after Trossard after missing out on Mykhailo Mudryk, who moved to Chelsea instead of Arsenal.
But the 28-year-old is having the far bigger impact so far as Arsenal look to escape Manchester City’s clutches in the title race.
The first goal came as Trossard whipped a ball into the box from a corner to find the head of Gabriel.
Trossard then bamboozled Tete with sharp footwork before standing the ball up at the far post to find Gabriel Martinelli.
And just before half-time the Belgian once again slipped down the left and found a cross, with this one controlled and then slashed home by Martin Odegaard.
