'It was that goalscorer's instinct we all have'

Another game, another Lucas Torreira goal.

Our Uruguayan midfielder scored in the north London derby a week ago, and followed it up with the winner against Huddersfield.

So what was his reaction to another matchwinning display?

Lucas, it was a hard-fought win today. How important were the three points?

"When the ball went to the back post, I saw Auba control the ball and got myself into the box because I thought he might put it straight back in," Torreira told Arsenal Player.

"The goalie made it hard for him so Auba hung it up and I was there waiting. It was just the goalscorer’s instinct that all players have – thankfully it came off and the goal meant we won the game.

"I am really happy, really happy. I work really hard throughout the week to make these moments happen at the weekend, because that’s the most important thing.

"These goals help the team to keep winning, keep improving and keep building confidence. We have a fantastic team and a great group and we enjoy playing together.

"The goal is for the fans too – they show up every week and follow us to all the different stadiums. They’re always there so this goal is for them first and foremost."
