The Brighton star gives Potter a solution to the transfer problem as Chelsea and City Circle

ALBION star Leandro Trossard has puzzled boss Graham Potter after his superb performance in the team’s 5-1 win over La Liga club Espanyol.

The Seagulls will start their Premier League season with a visit to Old Trafford for a game against Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.

Trossard played in the role of left-back as he scored a brilliant second-half hat-trick against the Spaniards.

He’s played that role before when he was on international duty with Belgium, so he was no stranger to it before the game and certainly impressed Potter.

Potter said, “He’s got the qualities, we all know that.

“I think he likes that role on the left. That means he can play centrally from there, and of course he can come to his right side and score.

“So it looks like he’s enjoying his football.

“He ended the season really well and we’re happy to see him again.”

Potter has started Leo in a more central position in the past but agreed a wide role doesn’t seem to affect his goal production.

“It’s also a bit what he thought.

“He wanted to play centrally and you sometimes get that feeling, but actually he’s really good over wide areas.

“He gives you an option because he can play indoors, he can go wide in the middle with his right foot.

“He gives you that and if he scores goals it’s a bonus.”

This could be crucial for Albion as Marc Cucurella’s transfer saga drags on and if Trossard proves an effective option, it could soften the blow if the Spaniard is sold.

The former Getafe man is very good afterwards, with Manchester City and Chelsea both interested in his signature.

With two attacking full-backs in Trossard and Solly March both in the starting XI, Potter was content with the extra work of midfielders Alexis Mac Allister and Moises Caicedo to cover them.

He said: “Yeah, you kind of have to balance it and those two read the game well.

“Moises does that really well for a young player and makes key interceptions and tackles and obviously the back three provide that support. So it’s about finding the balance.”
