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.

Leafs no match for defending KIJHL Champion Kimberley Dynamiters

first_imgSawyer Hunt played most of his minor hockey in Nelson.So it should come to no one’s surprise that the former Nelson Minor Hockey product would have something to say in a game between his new club, the Kimberley Dynamiters, and the Nelson Leafs.Hunt scored twice to lead the Nitros to a 4-0 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League victory over the Leafs Saturday night at the NDCC Arena.The loss, coupled with a 5-2 setback Friday in Fernie against the Ghostriders, drops the Leafs into fourth spot in Neil Murdoch Division standings. Nelson, tied with Grand Forks at 35 points, has played two more games than the Bruins.Hunt, who opened the game with a power play goal six minutes into the contest, put the visitors up by three goals by jamming home the puck during a goal mouth scramble with time running out in the second frame.The 3-0 lead was more than enough of a cushion for All-World goalie Tyson Brouwer in the Kimberley nets.Brouwer, the third-best backstopper in the KIJHL, stopped all 16 shots to register the shutout.Patrick Ostermann took the loss in goal for Nelson as the hosts were out shot 31-16 in the contest.LEAFS NOTES: Nelson travels to Castlegar Saturday for the first game of a home-and-home series against the Rebels. The rematch is January 29 in Nelson. . . . Nelson will wait until February before testing newly signed netminder Josh Williams returns to the lineup for the Leafs. Williams is currently re-habbing a knee injury that has kep the Alberta based netminder out of the lineup. . . . The Leafs were missing defenceman Kyle Chernenkoff. The Crescent Valley native suffered a concussion Friday in Fernie and was forced to leave the lineup until he’s given the clearance.last_img read more
