Martin Keown has expressed concern on Kieran Tierney not being in Mikel Arteta’s plans anymore.

Tierney has always been a regular in Arsenal’s stating XI, yet he’s now found himself out of it despite being fit and available again.

Speaking on talkSPORT, the Gunners legend stated that the Scot isn’t the kind of player who would “stick around” if he’s not playing.

“I don’t know,” Keown replied when asked why Tierney appears to have fallen out XI.


“I think that’s a mystery.


“Tavares has done exceptionally well. Maybe the manager doesn’t believe in Tierney as much as we might believe in him.


“(Tavares) made a few mistakes at Anfield and the manager said ‘I’m not gonna drop him’. I think there’s a problem brewing with Tierney.


“He’s a real quality player, he’s a leader, the type of defender the Arsenal fans have wanted for years and now he’s not in the team.


“He’s not been near to coming on in any of the games (recently), he’s got to keep his head down, keep working and not become a problem for the manager.


“He doesn’t strike me as the sort of lad who’s going to stick around if he doesn’t get a game of football.”
