The Belgian international scored the equaliser for Arsenal who felt hard done by in the last minute of the game.

Leandro Trossard believes Arsenal should have been awarded a penalty in the closing stages of their 2-2 draw against Bayern Munich.

The Gunners opened the scoring after 12 minutes through Bukayo Saka, before Bayern hit back with a quickfire equaliser from former Arsenal forward Serge Gnabry.

Former Tottenham striker Harry Kane scored a penalty on 32 minutes after William Saliba tripped Leroy Sane, but it was Trossard who came up trumps with an important equaliser on 76 minutes.

However, Arsenal felt that they should have been given a penalty after goalkeeper Manuel Neuer made contact with Saka in the final seconds of the game.

"It looked like a penalty to me, it looked like clear contact,” said Trossard.

“We're not pleased but when you are 2-1 down at half-time you will take point at the end.

"We started so well. We could have scored two or three goals after taking the lead. You can see what kind of quality Bayern Munich have to hurt us.

"Luckily I helped the team with a goal so I am pleased with that. I always try to do whatever I can on the pitch. Hopefully I can help in the next few weeks. We have such a great team and we know it will be hard over there. If we play at our best level we can beat anyone."
