Arsenal: Fans broken as images of Lucas Torreira emerge after yesterday’s draw against Crystal Palace

Arsenal fans seemed broken after news broke about Lucas Torreira’s reaction to the Granit Xhaka debacle in yesterday’s 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace.

Should Xhaka ever play for Arsenal again?

No

No

Yes

Yes

It was revealed by the club’s photographer Stuart MacFarlane that the Uruguayan was brought to tears following the fans reaction to Xhaka’s substitution.

The Switzerland international turned villain in yesterday’s draw after he threw off the captain’s armband, walked off the pitch and appeared to goad the north London faithful.

His actions were blasted by former Arsenal man and Match of the Day pundit Ian Wright, who claimed it wasn’t ‘captain’s behaviour’ (via BBC).

This isn’t the first time Torreira has been brought to tears during an Arsenal game. He was pictured crying during the club’s 4-1 loss to Chelsea in the Europa League final last season (via The Mirror).

Fans seemed to be broken by the images of the £49.5m-rated (per Transfermarkt) man as they took to Twitter to react.

Here is a selection of tweets from Gooners:

Arsenal fans, what do you make of the images of Torreira? Let us know your thoughts!
