It has been confirmed that Kieran Tierney will miss the rest of the season having suffered a knee injury.
The 24 year old returned from Scotland international duty with the problem, having played the full 90 minutes in two friendlies against Poland and Austria.
🚨 EXCL: Kieran Tierney to have surgery later this week on knee injury, ruling him out for several months. Will miss remainder of Premier League season & potentially Scotland’s #Qatar2022 qualifying play-off vs Ukraine proposed for June @TheAthleticUK #AFC https://t.co/9UehZm7bO8

It’s reminiscent of last season when he picked up a knee injury at the business end of the season, and missed the Europa League semi-finals before returning for the final five games in the Premier League.
Since his arrival from Celtic, he has suffered a number of issues, most significant of which was a shoulder problem which required surgery.
His absence will give Mikel Arteta plenty to think about, with some doubts over Nuno Tavares after his poor display against Palace.
Get well soon, KT.
