Lucas Torreira has provided a promising update on an ankle injury picked up in Arsenal’s 2-0 victory over Portsmouth in the FA Cup on Monday night.
It was a good response from Mikel Arteta’s side, who dropped out of Europe following a last-gasp defeat to Olympiacos on Thursday.
One sour note for Arsenal came when midfielder Torreira was taken off injured on a stretcher just 17 minutes into the game.
The Uruguay international left Fratton Park on crutches with Arteta saying: “He was in a lot of pain, he is in a brace at the moment.
“He will be assessed in the next few days and we will know more. I don’t know if it’s the bone or ligaments, we don’t know yet.”
However, the 24-year-old reckons he will be “fine” with the injury not as bad as it looked.
