Lucas Torreira is expected to be available for Arsenal when they travel to Napoli for the second leg of their Europa League quarter-final on Thursday (kick-off 8pm).

The midfielder played a part in the second goal as Arsenal won the first leg 2-0 at the Emirates after an impressive first-half display.

However, he was taken off at half-time of the 1-0 victory at Watford on Monday Night Football due to a groin injury.

Torreira is set to be assessed ahead of the match, with Gunners head coach Unai Emery saying he was “60 per cent happy” with the first-leg result.

Napoli won 3-1 at Chievo in Serie A on Sunday and midfielder Jose Callejon revealed the players held a meeting after a “disappointing” first leg against Arsenal.

The winner of the tie faces Valencia or Villarreal in the semi-finals.

Arsenal will be without Denis Suarez due to a groin injury along with long-term absentees Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding and Danny Welbeck.
