Tierney shoulder injury being assessed

Earlier today, David Ornstein reported in The Athletic (£) that Kieran Tierney has been nursing a shoulder problem in recent weeks. 

Hours later, he went down during Arsenal’s 3-1 win over West Ham and left the pitch with his shirt being used as a makeshift sling for his right arm. 

After the game, Freddie Ljungberg revealed that the Scot had gone to the hospital to be assessed. 

“Tierney, I think it’s something with his shoulder but I don’t know exactly what it is,” said the boss.

“But obviously we had to take him off so I think he’s going to maybe go to hospital and check what it is.”

If it’s a dislocation, he could be out for months. Even if it’s not as serious as that, there’s a fairly high chance he could miss a significant chunk of the festive period when games come every few days. 

Coming so soon after his recovery from a hernia operation, it’s very frustrating for both the player and the club. We wish him a swift recovery. 

There was also an update on Hector Bellerin, sidelined for a couple of weeks by a tight hamstring, who pulled out of the starting lineup just before kick-off.

“Hector had a bit of feeling, I think, in his hamstring in the warm-up,” confirmed Ljungberg.

“Then we took the decision. I said I’m not going to force anyone to play if you don’t feel 100 per cent.

“So we took him off and had a straight swap on that with Ainsley, and Ainsley had been out in the cold for a little bit and comes on and does really well, so I’m really proud of him and happy for him.”
