Torreira shares favourite moment at Arsenal

12 Jun 2019, 20:55

Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira has revealed his favourite moment of the concluded season is when his side beat Tottenham 4-2 in a north London derby.

Torreira joined Arsenal from Sampdoria last summer and found cemented his place in Unai Emery’s starting XI after a while. His start came in mid-September as Arsenal beat Everton 2-0 at the Emirates and since then he became a regular starter. Torreira’s favourite moment will definitely make Arsenal fans happy as he revealed their 4-2 win over bitter rivals Spurs was his best in late 2018 where he netted his first goal for the club.

"My first north London derby was unforgettable, because of the way it went down and how you experience these games. We knew how important the Tottenham game was going into it,” he told Arsenal Player.

"We were playing at home in front of a lot of fans and we had to win - we had to give the fans something to celebrate. It was a really long game and an entertaining one too: we took the lead and then they went 2-1 up before we were able to put the game to bed in the second half.”

"It was a wonderful goal for me to score. It meant an awful lot. Scoring in the derby is the best thing that can happen to a player so I really enjoyed it."

Torreira will lead his national team Uruguay in the Copa America which is set to kick off over the weekend.
