MARTIN KEOWN has heaped praise on Arsenal star Kieran Tierney for his impact on the Arsenal side since football's return after the coronavirus crisis.

The ex-Celtic defender has become a mainstay in Mikel Arteta's side and is quickly establishing himself as a fan favourite at the Emriates due to his tough tackling performances.

He's also impressed Gunners legened Keown, who reckons the Scotland international has been a breath of fresh air in the Arsenal line-up.

He said on talkSPORT: "I love what I see, I see there is a winner there.

"A very humble individual, who wants to get on and work, it's not been an easy transition for him.

"He came in injured with a groin problem, he then had the dislocated shoulder and now he has slotted into the back three, he looks very strong.

"He can play wing-back, ultimately he will be Arsenal's left-back but, for now, he's doing a really good job playing in the middle."
