Unai Emery gives update on Lucas Torreira playing against Everton

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has provided an update on the condition of Lucas Torreira ahead of the clash with Everton in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

The new Arsenal manager is still getting used to various things at the club after being appointed as the man to replace Arsene Wenger back in May.

The Gunners have had a long-standing issue with injuries for several years now and ahead of the clash with Everton, Lucas Torreira is sweating over his fitness.

Torreira picked up a knee problem in the Europa League win on Thursday night after making his first ever start since moving to the club during the summer.

After Thursday’s match, Emery was asked about the fitness of the midfielder and whether he would be able to play against Everton on Sunday, and the Arsenal manager provided an encouraging response.

“Each match we play, I am responsible for the group and for Torreira also, today I think it is better [for Lucas] to leave the match.” the former PSG boss said

“I hope that tomorrow and Saturday, he will be OK for Sunday.”
