Arsenal new boss has dropped a massive update on injured star Lucas Torreira ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash against Everton.
Torreira was forced to limp off in the 57th minute of last night’s Europa League romp against Vorskla Poltava after suffering a blow to the knee.
Emery said: “Each match we play, I am responsible for the group and for Torreira also, today I think it is better [for Lucas] to leave the match.
“I hope that tomorrow and Saturday, he will be okay for Sunday.”
The former Sampdoria midfielder joined Arsenal in the summer in a £26.5m deal but got his first start in the Arsenal shirt against FC Vorskla Poltava but has impressed off the bench in all five Premier League fixtures.
Emery revealed he was pleased with his performance
“Well, Lucas is playing with his progress on the team and on our ideas, our performance with a passion and with a performance,” Emery said.
“Each minute he is playing, he is doing very well.”
