‘Glad He Is Back’ ‘We’ve Lacked His Tenacity’ – Arsenal Fans On Twitter Delighted To See Midfield General Back In Contention

Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira will be back in contention for the Premier League run-in following his suspension.

The 23-year-old was given a three-match ban following his sending off in the North London derby against Tottenham last month.

Supporters believe that the team missed Torreira badly in the 1-0 defeat to Everton last weekend:

The midfield of Matteo Guendouzi and Mohamed Elneny failed to convince in the disappointing loss at Goodison Park, and Torreira’s return should offer some greater dynamism in the middle of the park.

With Granit Xhaka still struggling with a groin injury, the reintroduction of the Uruguayan could prove timely with a crucial league match away at Watford on Monday following the Napoli game tomorrow evening.

Torreira has been pretty much ever-present in manager Unai Emery’s first team since the New Year, having only failed to start games against Fulham and West Ham in the Premier League in 2019 before his suspension.
