Arsenal will be without Kieran Tierney when they face Sporting Lisbon in their UEFA Europa League round of 16 clash on Thursday. The Scottish left-back is reportedly unwell and will not travel with the team to Portugal for the game as per Charles Watts. This news comes as a disappointment to Arsenal fans who were hoping to see Tierney in the starting eleven for this crucial match.

Tierney has not started many games for Arsenal this season, with Oleksandr Zinchenko being the first choice left-back of Mikel Arteta. However, his absence will be felt by the team as he has had great performances in his limited appearances this season.

Arsenal have been outstanding in the Premier League this season, currently leading after 26 games. However, they will also want to win the UEFA Europa League and add another trophy to their cabinet.

Despite Tierney’s absence, Arsenal still have a strong squad that can get the job done against Sporting Lisbon. Players like Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli have stepped up this season and could play a key role in this match.

In conclusion, Arsenal will be without Kieran Tierney when they face Sporting Lisbon on Thursday but they still have enough quality to win this game. The Gunners are aiming to win both the Premier League and UEFA Europa League this season and will be looking to take one step closer towards achieving that goal with a victory over Sporting Lisbon.

I am a very stubborn person who is always very argumentative in football discussions but I always win. I like writing about transfer news most.
