Arsenal confirm fractured ankle for Torreira as Tierney returns to full training

Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira has fractured his right ankle with no date set for his return.

Arsenal has confirmed that midfielder Lucas Torreira has suffered a broken ankle.

The Uruguayan midfielder was taken off on a stretcher during Monday’s FA Cup win over Portsmouth.

Torreira was caught in a heavy challenge after just 12 minutes of the 2-0 success, and played no further part in proceedings. A group of home fans could be heard chanting: “You’re going home in an ambulance” as he received treatment.


He underwent further tests at Fratton Park, before leaving post-game on crutches, wearing a protective boot.

Arsenal faced an anxious waiting before discovering the full severity of his injury and it has now been revealed that the combative 24-year-old suffered a broken bone.

A club statement declared that they are “awaiting further specialist reviews which will determine a recovery plan.”
