"I don’t care what anyone says, Mudryk, and we’ve seen up to this point, he wouldn’t have done what Trossard has done what Trossard has been doing up to this point," Ian Wright said on his Wrighty’s House podcast.
"Mudryk, for his own sake, I do feel sorry for him because I don’t know if there’s anyone in the history of football whose had to have a transfer of that amount of money with so much politicalness around him. It’s almost unfair.
"When we talk about composure and finding the right colour when it’s looking really blurry in the box and many players rush passes, he’s the opposite,’ said the Gunners boss.
"He got three assists and could have scored two. I think he was really impressive.
"Not only that, he had an injury three days ago which could have taken a week, or another 10 days, but he was really willing to come back early and the doctors and medical staff did a lot of good work to get that.
"It makes a big difference in the team. We needed him today and his contribution was superb."
Mudryk seemed to be heading to Arsenal until a last-minute move to Chelsea. The Gunners would then sign Trossard from Brighton.
The Belgian has hit the ground running with a goal and five assists in the Premier League so far.
