Arsenal 2 – 1 Newcastle : Valuable Lessons Learnt

To put an icing on the cake, the 29-year-old scored the goal that ensured Unai Emery’s side picked the maximum three points.

Torreira Continues To Impress From the Bench

In the fifth time in a row, the Uruguayan midfielder has had a huge impact on the team’s result despite being a second-half substitute.

Despite fans desire to see Torreira in the club’s starting lineup, Unai Emery left the player on the substitute bench ahead of the encounter.

However, his introduction in the second period of the game brought the best out of his teammates as his display at the middle of the pitch was nothing but inspiring.
