Unai Emery's midfield is depleted after suffering double injury blow

Ahead of their clash against Watford, Arsenal duo Granit Xhaka and Lucas Torreira have suffered injuries while on international duty with Switzerland and Uruguay respectively. 

Xhaka was withdrawn in the latter stages of the 4-0 win over Gibraltar on Sunday night with an Achilles problem. The Swiss national team posted footage on Twitter of Xhaka hobbling as he exited the match. The extent of his injury is yet to be revealed but it does not seem as though he would be out for long.

Torreira featured for Uruguay in the 2-1 win over Costa Rica but was substituted before half time. According to reports, the Arsenal midfielder suffered an injury knock. With Uruguay facing the USA on Wednesday, it is currently unclear whether Torreira will be involved in that match.
