Arsenal Midfielder Torreira suffers fractured ankle during FA Cup win at Portsmouth

Lucas Torreira of Arsenal is treated before he is carried off on a stretcher during the FA Cup Fifth Round match between Portsmouth FC and Arsenal FC at Fratton Park on March 02, 2020 in Portsmouth, England.

Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira suffered a fractured ankle during Monday's FA Cup fifth round win against Portsmouth.

Torreira, 24, had to be carried off on a stretcher after just 16 minutes following a challenge by Portsmouth defender James Bolton.

No timescale has yet been put on his recovery, with Arsenal waiting for "further specialist reviews".

Torreira has made 33 appearances for Arsenal this season.

Meanwhile, defender Kieran Tierney is back in full training after recovering from a dislocated shoulder.

Injuries have restricted the Scotland international to just 11 appearances for the Gunners since signing from Celtic last summer.

Arsenal are also hopeful Cedric Soares will return to full training next week after recovering from a knee injury, with Sead Kolasinac due to resume training by the end of the month after a shoulder problem.
