Lucas Torreira has already become a fan favourite at the Emirates Stadium because the Arsenal supporters enjoyed his performance in the FIFA World Cup as he was among the players that led Uruguay out of the group stages until the quarter finals where they got eliminated by France, he had some impressive performances like how he marked Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo in their match against Portugal.
Stephan Lichtsteiner is a veteran right back and football pundits will be criticizing Unai Emery if the Swiss international doesn’t impress in the upcoming season because no one knows what Unai Emery has in plans for the 34-year-old.
Arsenal will face their arch rivals Chelsea tomorrow and Lucas Torreira and Stephan Lichtsteiner won’t be featuring for the gunners in that match because they are still in the early stages of their training because they were given a three weeks break by Unai Emery and just returned at the club this week.
