Torreira was pictured holding an ice pack on his left leg throughout the second half, and the Sun report that he is a doubt for the game against Newcastle on Saturday, but could feature in the Europa League against Vorskla. Fans on Twitter were not happy about the injury setback:

One supporter wanted to take extreme measures:
If Torreira is injured, we need to invade Mexico

The Sun are probably guessing about when Torreira will be back. The injury will have to be assessed by the Gunners’ medical staff before a timeframe can be given.
Fans will be hoping it is just a knock, and nothing more. The Uruguayan has been impressive when he has had his chances from the bench so far this campaign.
