Lucas Torreira broke down in tears after he was substituted during Arsenals 4-1 defeat to Chelsea in the Europa League final on Wednesday evening.

Chelsea then scored two more in quick succession as Pedro rounded off a fine move before Eden Hazard sent Petr Cech the wrong way to put Sarris side 3-0 up.

Unai Emery then decided to make two changes as Matteo Guendouzi and Alex Iwobi replaced Nacho Monreal and Lucas Torreira.

And as Torreira made his way off the pitch, the Uruguayan midfielder looked visibly upset and was clearly in tears.
