Comparing Arsenal’s record with and without Lucas Torreira in 2019-20
Despite showing flashes of his talent at Arsenal, Lucas Torreira has struggled to cement his place in the side under Mikel Arteta in 2019-20.
Torreira has been heavily linked with a move away from the Emirates for the past 12 months, with AC Milan and Fiorentina reportedly vying for his signature.
We’ve compared Arsenal’s Premier League record with the midfielder in the starting XI to without him in 2019-20.
With Torreira starting
Points per game: 1.05
Win rate: 17.6%
Goals per game: 1.18
Goals against per game: 1.35

Without Torreira starting
Points per game: 1.8
Win rate: 52.4%
Goals per game: 1.71
Goals against per game: 1.19
As the stats show, Arsenal have a higher win rate and pick up more points per game without Torreira in the team, although this does not take into account standard of opposition. Still, if you enjoy football betting, the stats suggest you should probably steer clear of Arsenal with Torreira starting.
The Gunners also average more goals per game and concede a lot less when the Uruguay international is left out of the starting line-up.
