Kieran Tierney is set to see a specialist tomorrow after being ruled out of tonight’s clash with Crystal Palace because of a knee injury.
With Mikel Arteta admitting the injury ‘does not look good’, reports from Scottish media suggest his season could be over as the problem requires surgery.
The 25 year old played 90 minutes in both of Scotland’s recent friendlies with Poland and Austria, and while it remains unclear when and how the injury actually occurred, it’s said he returned to Arsenal from international duty with it.
With an already thin squad, we could do without any more depletion, especially to a player as important as he is.
Fingers crossed, but right now it look as if Nuno Tavares will be getting some games under his belt. Let’s hope he can step up, and that it turns out to be not too serious for KT.
