‘Mismanagement’: Some Arsenal fans perplexed as Emery snubs 23-year-old again

Arsenal fans were critical of a number of Unai Emery’s decisions last night – including leaving Lucas Torreira on the bench.

Torreira was not named in the starting line-up with Emery opting for a midfield trio of Joe Willock, Matteo Guendouzi and Granit Xhaka instead. Torreira and Dani Ceballos were left on the bench and Arsenal fans were not happy with this.

This season, Torreira has been used sparingly. He was only given seven minutes in the win against Bournemouth before the break. And Emery didn’t bring him on against Sheffield United.

Arsenal lost 1-0 and fans questioned the decision to leave Torreira out. Many pointed out that the Uruguay international has been more consistent than Xhaka in the defensive midfield role.

Torreira has played 10 times this season, including seven matches in the Premier League. But only two of his league outings have been starts. The 23-year-old’s lack of action this season will frustrate him.
