‘Seriously Missing Him’ ‘Wouldn’t Have Made Any Difference’ Arsenal Fans Debate Whether Arteta Made Liverpool Selection Mistake

Arsenal left-back Kieran Tierney was overlooked by manager Mikel Arteta for the starting lineup against Liverpool on Saturday.

The Gunners boss opted to keep faith with Nuno Tavares, who had been in good form before the international break. However, the Portuguese defender’s poor pass led directly to Diogo Jota scoring the second for the Reds in the 4-0 defeat.

Supporters on Twitter were asked whether Tierney should have started, and there was a mixed reaction, with some thinking he would have been the better option, while others were not so convinced:


As they say, hindsight is 20/20. Tavares had been excellent heading into the game at Anfield and it would have been a surprise if he had been left out.

The 21-year-old will undoubtedly learn a lot from the experience, but he may have to spend another spell on the bench if Tierney is reinstated for upcoming games against Newcastle and Manchester United.
