Arsenal fans on Twitter are raging having had Torreira’s red card appeal denied

As if Arsenal fans weren’t already panicking ahead of facing Manchester United, they now have to do so without Lucas Torreira. The Uruguayan destroyer couldn’t quite repeat his December display against Tottenham last Saturday as he was dismissed late on, and lots of Arsenal fans have been left livid as their appeal of his send-off has been unsuccessful.

It always seems to be the very toughest matches where your star men find themselves unavailable or injured, and in this case, the timing could not be worse for the Gunners. Facing your direct rivals for the top four is always going to be a huge clash and with just nine games remaining and one point in it between Arsenal and Manchester United, this one will be crucial.

Torreira has the ability to win games on his own. We’ve all seen it this season, and the aforementioned game against Tottenham in the Premier League in December is proof of that. Indeed Unai Emery does have options who can call upon to replace the 23-year-old, but no Arsenal fan will be keen to go into this clash in front of their own fans without the ex-Sampdoria star.
