Kieran Tierney

Popular football expert Garth Crooks has showered appreciation on Toolbox left-back Kieran Tierney and has actually selected him in his Premier League Team of the week for BBC Sport.

The 23- year-old scored the opening goal for the Gunners and produced a superb performance against the Baggies as Arsenal won 4-0 on Saturday in the Premier League.

In reality, Tierney– who signed up with Toolbox from Celtic for a cost in the area of ₤25 m in 2019– has been incredibly constant throughout, and Crooks has actually appropriately explained that he ‘has actually been one of the few shining lights’ for Toolbox this season.

” When I saw Tierney tease West Brom’s Darnell Furlong– not once, but two times– I thought he had actually slightly overdone it, however what then occurred was ending up of the highest order from the Toolbox full-back. For the left-footed Scot to cut within and let fly so accurately with his weaker foot was extremely outstanding,” said Crooks to BBC Sport.

” Tierney has been among the couple of shining lights in what has actually been a challenging season for Arsenal up until now, but this success over the Baggies is the Gunners’ third consecutive win. I wonder if they have turned the corner.”

Tierney developed the most opportunities (four) and had the most touches (95) for Arsenal against West Brom. Apart from Tierney, two goals from Alexandre Lacazette and one from Bukayo Saka sealed all three points for the Gunners last Saturday.

After the match, Toolbox boss Mikel Arteta was full of praise for the Scotland protector, and even suggested that he has all the capability to be a future captain of the club.

Only a few weeks ago, Arsenal fans were fearing the worst they could be involved in a transfer battle after a sorrowful run of form.

However, the Gunners have now climbed up to 11 th in the Premier League table following three straight wins. They are playing with confidence now, and it appears they may have turned the corner.
