Unai Emery has revealed Kieran Tierney as “ready to play” ahead of Arsenal’s match with Sheffield United in the Premier League on Monday evening.
Scotland international has been getting used to life at The Emirates after having joined for the Arsenal from Celtic during the summer transfer window.
The 22-year-old has been recovering from an injury he picked up before his transfer to the Gunners, but he is now back in full training and is looking forward to making his Premier League debut for the North London club.
The Scottish left-back has so far made two games for the Gunners this season, and he will wish to be involved when the Unai Emery’s side travel to Bramall Lane on Monday night.
Unai Emery has announced that Tierney is now completely fit and ready to race for a starting place in the line-up against the Blades.
Speaking at his news conference on Thursday, Arsenal boss said: “[Tierney is] ready to play.
“Now we have two options in that left-back role with Sead Kolasinac and him. We’re going to play a lot of matches after Monday. We will need every player.
“It depends how he comes into the first training with us, Sead, after his international matches.
“We now have two players in that position and we can use one on Monday, it depends how they are, one or the other.”
Unai Emery also announced that he would make a late decision on whether to start French striker for Monday’s trip to Sheffield United.
Alexandre Lacazette has been out of action with an ankle injury, but he has recovered to full training and is on the road to return to work.
