Lucas Torreira has revealed Arsenal boss Unai Emery tells him to attack before each match.
The Uruguayan, who arrived in the £ 25 million summer from Sampdoria, says he has confidence in Gunner’s manager and his teammates.
The midfielder has been very impressed since joining a local hero after scoring Arsenal fourth in his 4-2 victory over the bitter rivals Spurs on Sunday.
“I have confidence in my teammates and the coach tells me before each game tries to get ahead,” says Torreira.
“Obviously, when we’re out on the pitch, we like to create chances to score.

“In the previous match I had hit the post so close.
“On Sunday I became happy and I’m so fond of it.”
A man impressed by the midfielder is Gunners legend Ian Wright.
He is the guy we were looking for in the last 4 or 5 years, said the former Arsenal striker at Match of the Day 2.

“Everyone has asked” when should we write a defensive midfielder? “and now we have that guy in Torreira.
” He was wonderful today, very brilliant. When you look at how he plays, when you look at his hand – he’s everywhere. He is everywhere on the plan.
“That’s the way he naturally comes in places where he can get into people. And when he has time he has quality on the ball.”
