Arsenal fans were full of praise for Kieran Tierney yesterday evening despite being on the losing end to Brendan Rodgers' Leicester City in the Premier League.

The former Celtic left-back was trending on social media for hours after putting in a stellar performance at the Emirates. The Scotland cap was one of the Gunners' only shining lights as they lost out to a late Jamie Vardy goal in a 1-0 defeat. 

Tierney's accurate deliveries from wide areas and impressive crossing ability was particularly highlighted - with striker Alexander Lacazette coming in for some criticism for not attacking them and taking advantage.

One fan said: "Felt really sorry for Tierney yesterday, in that first half. Produced three excellent crosses after good distribution for Luiz. If Lacazette takes his chance then everyone would be talking about his performance in a positive way." Another added: "Giroud would be having a field day with these Tierney crosses."

One supporter commented: "Imagine Dominic Calvert-Lewandowski on the end of these balls Tierney’s putting in". A fourth said: "Tierney should only ever be compared to Robertson in the PL. Most complete left back in football by a mile. Total football. Does everything a player in his position can."

Tierney was brought off for Eddie Nketiah moments after Arsenal went a goal behind, much to the disappointment of supporters.
