Leandro Trossard was the protagonist in Arsenal's win against Burnley. The Belgian's goal not only moved Arsenal to the second place in the English Premier League table, but also notched up their 1,000th goal at the Emirates Stadium.

The landmark goal was scored just before the break, after a brilliant header from Bukayo Saka.

Gilberto Silva netted the first goal for the stadium when it was opened in 2006 in a match against Aston Villa.  The club’s current manager Mikel Arteta scored the 500th goal against Anderlecht on November 4, 2014.

The 900th goal was scored by Charlie Patino on December 21, 2021, in a match against Sunderland.

Trossard bravely opened the scoring in first-half stoppage time before providing a perfect delivery from a corner for William Saliba to restore the Gunners' lead after Josh Brownhill had levelled.

It was Trossard's sixth goal of the season, and seventh in all for the club, and incredibly all seven have been assisted by Bukayo Saka.
