Manchester United legend Gary Neville praises Lucas Torreira for 'setting the tone' in Arsenal's memorable comeback victory over Tottenham Hotspur.

Gary Neville has heaped praised on Lucas Torreira for his "absolutely brilliant" performance in Arsenal's comeback win against Tottenham Hotspur.

The Uruguayan midfielder capped a memorable turnaround for the Gunners by netting the fourth of their goals in Sunday's 4-2 triumph at the Emirates Stadium.

Torreira has settled into life in North London after being eased into the starting lineup upon arriving from Sampdoria in the summer, producing arguably his best all-round display yet against Arsenal's arch-rivals.

Former Manchester United defender Neville picked out the 22-year-old for particular praise, telling Sky Sports News: "Without a shadow of a doubt, Torreira the terrier [is the man of the match].

"He scored a goal as well. He was absolutely brilliant and set the tone for everything Arsenal have done."

All-in-all, Torreira has featured 19 times for Arsenal in all competitions in his debut campaign at the club.
