After his fine performance against the Magpies on Saturday, Arsenal fans believe Unai Emery is convinced the Uruguayan is due for a place in his starting lineup.
However, that’s not going to happen when the Gunners tackle FC Vorskla on Thursday as the manager is set to name the player on the bench once again.
Though reports claimed that the manager — who won three consecutive Europa League titles with Sevilla — could make eight changes to the team that defeated Newcastle last weekend, Torreira might be dropped to the substitute bench once again.
On paper, the Gunners are expected to record an easy win over the Ukrainian side therefore Torreira need to be rested ahead of their clash against Everton on Saturday.
Granit Xhaka, Mesut Ozil, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Nacho Monreal, Petr Cech, Shkodran Mustafi, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Aaron Ramsey, who all against Newcastle are set to be frozen out of Emery’s starting lineup for tomorrow’s encounter.
As much as Emery want a bright start to his Europa League campaign, he wouldn’t like to risk his top players considering Everton’s tough challenges on Saturday.
Here is our predicted Unai Emery’s 4-2-3-1 starting lineup against FC Vorskla
Substitute bench:- Cech, Mustafi, Monreal, Torreira, Smith-Rowe, Ozil, Aubamayang.
