Many Arsenal fans have been left to bemoan an injury update on Kieran Tierney ahead of their UEFA Europa League first-leg tie at home to Slavia Prague.
As per the official website of the Emirates Stadium faithful, the former Celtic star sustained ligament damage to his left knee during the 3-0 loss at home to Liverpool on Saturday night, meaning that he will miss not just the game against Prague but also the next few upcoming matches.
Should Cedric start for Arsenal?
Surgery is not required, but Tierney will not be in training within the next four to six weeks in what is a big blow to Mikel Arteta’s team.
The decision to let Sead Kolasinac go out on loan in the January transfer window now looks to be a strange one as the Gunners are now without a recognisable senior left-back in the absence of Tierney.

“Tierney out all season, we are doomed”
“No no no no … !! Tierney out for 4-6 weeks and Odegaard maybe out as well”
“Tierney out for a month. We’re finished”
“Damn, unless we reach the Europa League Final we probably won’t see Tierney again this season.”
“Odegaard and Tierney out. Which means it is time to say goodbye to European football. Arteta willing we will be back in Europe by September 2022.”
“Tierney out for at least a month, we’re in trouble”
