The suspension of Premier League fixtures has given Arsenal further wriggle room to nurse Lucas Torreira back to full fitness.

“The way Torreira’s ankle was caught between Bolton’s legs meant that his ankle was caught in an external outward rotation, while taking a direct impact force.



“Prior to the delay of the Premier League season it was very likely that Torreira’s season was over.



“In the following weeks Lucas will continue to undergo regularly scheduled CT scans to assess fracture healing.

“That being said, his rehab process and return may take longer than normal due to quarantine restrictions and limited access to medical and training staff.” “Regardless of what happens to the Premier League season the excellent news is that with appropriate rehab and gradual ramping up of activity, Torreira shouldn’t have any long-lasting issues.

“All in all, he was fortunate to not have a higher severity unstable fracture which would have required surgery and potentially longer lasting implications.”

Uruguayan midfielder Torreira was stretchered off in Arsenal’s 2-0 FA Cup win over Portsmouth at the beginning of the month and left Fratton Park on crutches.
