Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira was taken off the pitch on a stretcher in Monday’s FA Cup fifth-round tie at Portsmouth.

Torreira, 24, came down holding his right leg after a tackle from Pompey defender James Bolton in the 12th minute at Fratton Park.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta opted to replace the Uruguay international with Dani Ceballos, who is on loan from Real Madrid.

Torreira was helped on to a stretcher by the Arsenal medical staff and given oxygen.

Arsenal went in 1-0 up at half-time after Sokratis volleyed in Reiss Nelson’s cross just before the break.

Torreira, who was signed from Sampdoria in 2018, has featured 32 times for Arsenal this season, scoring twice.
