Lucas Torreira goal vs Huddersfield: The Uruguayan midfielder scored an amazing bicycle kick as he assured the three points for Arsenal.
Arsenal have climbed up to third position in the league as Lucas Torreira’s incredible strike towards the closing stages of the game became the sole difference between the two sides.
Torreira scored his second goal for Arsenal in six days as he gave Arsenal the lead in the 83rd minute of the game.
With this win, Arsenal now have 34 points from 16 games. However, Unai Emery’s side remains 8 points behind the table toppers, Liverpool. The shape of the table could change, however, as Chelsea plays Manchester City later tonight.
Lucas Torreira’s goal vs Huddersfield:
In a desperate attempt to find the winner, Arsenal pushed players to attack in the final minutes of the game. A cross from midfielder Matteo Guendouzi found Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The striker was closed down quickly, however, but Aubameyang managed to cross the ball towards Torreira, who attempted an incredible bicycle kick to give Arsenal the lead.

God created Torreira to end Arsenal’s banter era.

Football is a simple game. 22 men chase the ball for 90 minutes and in the end Torreira is the best buy this summer.

Lucas Torreira won more fouls (7) vs. Huddersfield than any midfielder has won in a single Premier League game so far this season.
