Arsenal would have had a chance but for this reason



Lucas Torreira

North London outfit Arsenal are set to face their long Premier League rivals Man United later on Sunday as the battle for the top-four spot gets tougher.

The Gunners will be without Uruguay international Lucas Torreira in the game after he was shown the Red card which makes the Unai Emery team a weaker side, according to pundits.

With the Red Devils having France international Paul Pogba at their midfield, there are suggestions that the Gunners side will be weakened as he will not have any solid man to contend. That would have been well taken care of by Lucas Torreira.

Football journalist Paolo Bandini has described the absence of Lucas Torreira as a big disadvantage to the Arsenal team.

However, Paolo Bandini is of the opinion that the North London outfit can win the game against the Red Devils but that is only if they are able to bounce back from their defeat to French Ligue 1 Europa League opponent on Thursday.

Meanwhile, United have been tipped as favorites for the game having delivered a master-class performance against PSG on Wednesday to pick a qualification to the Champions League quarterfinals.
