Arsenal's Lucas Torreira out for the rest of the season

Arsenal will be without the services of midfielder Lucas Torreira for the rest of the season, as he is set to miss eight to 10 weeks of action after suffering a fracture in his right ankle last week.

The Uruguay international was taken off on a stretcher during Arsenal's 2-0 FA Cup win at Portsmouth and was later spotted leaving Fratton Park on crutches.

The loss of Torreira comes as a blow for the Gunners who are now fighting for a Champions League spot via a top-four finish after being bundled out of the Europa League by Olympiacos.

Arsenal is 9th on the table with 40 points and 8 points off the top four spot, but with a game in hand.

The Gunners' game in hand is against Manchester City and it will be played on Wednesday at the Etihad.
