Arsenal Star Suffers Injury Ahead Of Newcastle Clash This Weekend
Arsenal have suffered fresh injury worries ahead of their trip to Newcastle United in the Premier League after midfielder, Lucas Torreira picked up a knock while playing for his country, Uruguay.
Torreira started for Uruguay in their international friendly fixture against Mexico over the weekend but was substituted at half-time and sat on the bench with an ice pack on his left calf during the second half of the encounter as Uruguay went on to win 4-1.
According to Evening Standard, Torreira will now fly back to North London to be further assessed by Arsenal’s medical team but the midfielder is already considered a major doubt for their EPL clash against Rafael Benitez’s men at the St. James’ Park Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The untimely injury comes as a blow as Torreira was hoping to make his full debut this weekend having been used as a substitute since joining the Emirates club from Sampdoria in the summer.
