You could see how Torreira is massive for the team. When he come on, we totally controlled the game. Matteo also had very good game. El Neny days at the club numbered. #afc

Tonight was a big example of how important Torreira is. Dare I say that he is the most important player at our club? He’s the only player we don’t have another of with similar abilities #coyg #afc #arsenal
