Arsenal: Fans react to Kieran Tierney injury update

Arsenal: Fans react to Kieran Tierney injury update - Arsenal

Some Arsenal fans have been reacting to news about defender Kieran Tierney and his fitness.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference ahead of the north London club’s FA Cup fifth-round tie against Portsmouth, Mikel Arteta confirmed that the 22-year-old is closing in on a return following the shoulder injury he picked up at the end of 2019. As reported by Goal’s Charles Watts, the Arsenal boss said: “He’s much closer, he feels fit, he feels confident. Hopefully we can have him soon.

In the former Celtic man’s absence, winger Bukayo Saka has since been moved to the left-back position and has not disappointed there. The 18-year-old has been a real attacking threat down the left flank, providing an assist in Arsenal’s last Premier League outing against Everton and averaging the joint-second most dribbles per game in the squad (via WhoScored), so Tierney faces real competition when he returns.

Nevertheless, a lot of Arsenal fans were glad with Arteta’s update as they took to Twitter to react. Take a look at what they had to say below…
