    I said he can be upgraded on but he shouldn't be the first to be upgraded. Put some pace in midfield with him and forwards who can receive the ball to feet back to goal, or run behind and Torreira instantly looks better.

    People don't seem to be able to prioritise our issues with the squad.

    He wins the ball FAR more than any other player on this team and that's obvious.

    Lucas Torreira is the least of our worries in our midfield. Since Arteta has come in and has played him in a position and in a setup that works for him he has been very solid. Can think of several other positions that need addressing before we start thinking about moving him.

    Most people agree that at Arsenal our midfield is the biggest problem, guess who's part of that midfield? You guessed it Lucas Torreira, so how is he the least of our worries if he's part of our biggest issue?

    As I wrote, “Lucas Torreira is the least of our worries in our midfield”. Not sure what is unclear. Of all our midfield players he is the one I have the least issues with. I understand you do not rate him. I rate him highly. So we disagree on that player.

    We struggle to score goals so Aubameyang must be a terrible CF. We concede plenty so Leno must be a bum keeper too.

    Solid game. Fair play to him

    Another brilliant game, almost flawless. He should be getting the most plaudits above Xhaka.

    Xhaka was better which is why he’s getting the most plaudits.

    Better? In what world? He didn't step up for their goal. Torreira handled the Chelsea midfield by himself until Guendouzi came on.

    His work on the ball was very impressive also.

    Stop engaging him. He clearly has an agenda because he picks and chooses the part of the sentence he wants to reply to.

    I think he had a better game considering the circumstances. Playing in CB with ten men against waves of constant Chelsea pressure.

    That’s why he’s getting the plaudits, because they were deserved.

    Point taken. Cheers!

    i dont want to prejudge a player. Santi too was small and people said he wasnt good enough for a top side. Lets see how Lucas does. Guy has gotten so far on merit, which speaks a lot to his good qualities.

    Hopefully AMN or Willock or a new buy provides us some options and cover for xhaka/torreira.

    Comparing Xhaka to Torreira last night is pointless. Both stood up and were counted in different ways.

    When they play together under Arteta they seek to have formed a decent partnership. It's when Torreira goes off I get worried ( and he looks exhausted recently)

    We can't sell this guy. Mainstay in our midfield. As already mentioned, he was never a problem, the system he was forced to play under was the issue.

    Me having an agenda? That's libel.

    I slated him off, but he's been very good since Arteta come in. Far from flawless but one of the first names on the team sheet and the first in midfield.

    Hope he gets better soon but that looked like a huge amount of pain. Lets hope its nothing career-threatening.

    Not sure getting the ball warrants making such a risky two-legged challenge either.
