Arsenal: Fans baffled by Unai Emery’s use of Lucas Torreira after man of the match display

Arsenal fans were lauding Lucas Torreira amid criticism for former head coach Unai Emery for the way he used the Uruguayan midfielder.

The 24-year-old played a peripheral role under the Basque-born manager as he started just five of 13 Premier League games under him (via Transfermarkt).

Is Torreira back to his best again?

No

Yesterday could well go down as Torreira’s best performance of the season as he was voted the club’s man of the match (via Arsenal).

He made two tackles, two interceptions, four clearances and completed 40 passes in a brilliant midfield performance (via WhoScored).

Fans were full of praise for Torreira as they also took to Twitter to hit out at Emery for his use of the diminutive midfielder this campaign.

Here is a selection of tweets from the north London faithful:
