After seemingly getting over his injury woes, Arsenal full-back and Scotland international Kieran Tierney has suffered yet another injury.
The Scotsman was taken off during the Gunners’ 3-1 win over West Ham with what looked to be some kind of arm injury.
Interim Arsenal boss Freddie Ljungberg has confirmed following the victory that Scotland’s left-back is off to hospital to diagnose the extent of his latest knock.
He told Football London: “It’s something with his shoulder but I don’t know exactly what that is. We obviously had to take him off. He’s going to hospital to get it checked.”
Injury troubles again
Tierney hasn’t played for the national team since March for a variety of reasons. Some of it has been injury, other times because he has been asked by the London club not to play.
He first featured for them in September and has since played five Premier League games. It’s not been regular 90 minute appearances though for him.
Tierney’s only played four full games since his return from injury as he builds up his fitness. It’s less than ideal for him to suffer yet another knock that could rule him out for weeks.
Hopefully it isn’t a serious concern for Tierney.
