Arsenal left back Kieran Tierney says he is happy to be back in action after some time out with injury.
The 23-year-old Scotland International left back played the full 90mins yesterday as Arsenal lost to Manchester City by 0 – 1. Tierney was disappointed to be on the loosing side yesterday but was however happy to be back playing and hopes Arsenal gets back to winning ways as soon as possible.
In his words he (Tierney) has to say “I was just knackered!”
“Yeah, it was a tough game and I wasn’t sure if I was going to get the full game, but I did. It’s 90 minutes under my belt and I’m happy for that and happy that the manager gave me the chance again.”
On Arsenal poor start to the game he say,
“That’s what happened, really’ “Against a team like City you can’t afford to make the start we made in the first five or ten minutes or they’re going to punish you.
“It’s hard because nobody was planning to not start well, so it’s hard to say exactly what it was but it was just something that can happen against a top team and they punished us for it today.
“You try to think positively because you know you’re coming up against a team like City, so you know if you go one-nil down it’s not the end of the world because they’re playing brilliantly right now.
“We always believed that we could get back in it and we had chances and some parts of the game where we were doing really well and we were unlucky not to get a goal today.”
Arsenal currently sits on the 10th position on the Premier league table with 35 points from 25 games. The Gunners will be back in action on Thursday night when they take on Portuguese side Benfica in their second leg of the UEFA Europa league round 32.
