Torreira and Lichsteiner who were actively involved in the Russia 2018 World cup with Uruguay and Switzerland respectively, were handed an extended break as the missed the club’s pre-season outing in Singapore.
But the duo arrived to the club on Sunday, and Manager Unai Emery put the players back into contention at London Colney.
