Unai Emery might be anxiously checking on the condition of one of his key players after what was an injury scare over the weekend.
The new Arsenal manager has so far chosen similar line-ups for the opening four games of the new campaign.
One man who has not been given as much playing time as expected is Lucas Torreira, a player signed from Sampdoria after the World Cup was over.
Even though the Uruguay international is yet to make a start in the Premier League this term, he has proven that he is more than good enough to start on almost every occasion where he has made an appearance off the bench.
Thus, it was definitely a major worry for the Gunners as Torreira picked up a knock during his country’s clash with Mexico which saw them win 4-1.
The combative midfielder was withdrawn at half-time on Saturday due to the injury worry and according to journalist Ben Dinnery, Torreira will now have to be assessed before the next game.
