Arsenal’s retired midfielder Lucas Torreira lost a tooth when he scored for the first time in his career in consecutive games, ending Inter Milan’s title hopes in a 1-1 draw with Fiorentina.

The Uruguayan is in his second season away from the Emirates after spending the previous season at Atletico Madrid but may have finally found a home in Tuscany.

But was later left with a gap in his teeth

Torreira faced reigning Serie A champions Inter and scored the opening goal in the 50th minute as he scored fast goals in consecutive games for the first time as a professional footballer.

The 26-year-old then received a punch in the face and lost his tooth, which he carried over to the touchline before continuing to play with a cotton swab in his mouth which later fell out revealing his new gaping smile.

Inter equalized five minutes after Torreira’s goal through Dutch full-back Denzel Dumfries but found no winner and fell further behind in Italy’s title race.


Milan now lead on 66 points, followed by Napoli on 63 and Inter on 60 points, although the Nerazzurri have a game in hand on the two sides above them.

As for Fiorentina, the Viola continue to claim a claim to European football this season despite losing captain Dusan Vlahovic to Juventus in the January transfer window.

Torreira is now the team’s joint top scorer following the €70m departure of Vlahovic, with just four goals helping Fiorentina remain in the hunt for a top six spot.
