Much was expected of the Scotland international following his £25million transfer from Celtic last summer, but the 23-year-old signed when he was still recovering from a double hernia operation. Tierney made his belated debut in September but spent months on the sidelines after he dislocated his shoulder during a victory over West Ham while Freddie Ljungberg was in interim charge following the sacking of Unai Emery. Now back to full fitness, Tierney has thrived as a wing-back in Arteta’s new-look 3-5-2 formation which has yielded a significant improvement in Arsenal’s recent performances.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTTierney has offered a genuine attacking threat on Arsenal’s left flank and has contributed to a much more respectable defensive record.

Arteta, however, is said to be a huge fan of Tierney’s attitude and commitment to the cause, while former Arsenal left-back Ashley Cole believes the player is fast becoming one of the most important members of this current Arsenal team.

I think one thing that Arsenal were probably lacking in the past year was a left-back that was solid, didn’t get beaten in one-versus-one situations – he don’t get beat in one-v-one situations. ‘But I also think the way he attacks and the timing of his attacking runs, it brings a different element to Arsenal and a different way to attack.‘And he’s got a great delivery on him, as we just saw earlier, a great ball in that ended up with a corner. So he’s been very good for Arsenal I think.’MORE: Jeremie Aliadiere sends warning to Arsenal midfielder Matteo Guendouzi over his attitudeMORE: Arsenal legend Nigel Winterburn pours doubt over Matteo Guendouzi joining BarcelonaFollow Metro Sport across our social channels, on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.For more stories like this, check our sport page.
