Patrick Vieira said he had to change his tactical system to stop Kieran Tierney during the Arsenal clash on Monday night.

Speaking to the Eagles’ website. the Palace manager mentioned one concern from the 2-2 North London derby.

Former Gunners’ legend admitted, it was Tierney’s freedom, as the latter was enjoying Arsenal’s left back.

“On the left side we had Tierney, who was giving the width and he was giving us lots of problems. So we went with the back five, and had four midfielders really tight. At the end, outside of Tierney’s chance they didn’t create much,” Vieira said, toasting another job well done. 


“Even if you look at the way we conceded the second goal, it was unlucky. But again, that shows we still need to improve a lot of parts of our game.”
