Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta reveals Kieran Tierney to have MRI scan after in-form defender misses stalemate with Crystal Palace

Mikel Arteta has revealed Kieran Tierney is to have an MRI scan on Friday

Mikel Arteta has admitted he is unsure as to how soon Kieran Tierney will return for Arsenal while conceding the Gunners missed him during the dull 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace at the Emirates on Thursday evening.

Tierney has become a vital fixture in the north Londoners backline this term, in defence, as well as bombing forward along the left flank. 

A muscle issue kept him out of the Gunners drab stalement with the Eagles - with Arsenal far less effective offensively.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the match, Arteta provided an update on Tierney, saying: "I don't know [when he will be back]. He is going to have an MRI scan and we'll see how he is."

On how much Arsenal missed him against Palace, he added: "He's a real threat and the way we are playing and the way we attack on that left-side, he's a really important player.

"We didn't have him, he's injured, and we have to find other solutions."
