‘Honestly don’t understand’: Some Arsenal fans think 22-year-old should start instead of regular

A number of Arsenal fans are struggling to comprehend why Unai Emery is sticking with Sead Kolasinac over Kieran Tierney.

Despite having Tierney back fit, Emery has kept his faith in Kolasinac. Arsenal lost 1-0 to Sheffield United at Bramall Lane last night and Kolasinac had a tough evening in Yorkshire.

Meanwhile, Tierney was sitting on the bench. The 22-year-old is yet to make his league debut since his summer move from Celtic. This has mainly been down to injury but he is now back and in contention.

Tierney recently made his debut against Nottingham Forest in the EFL Cup. The Scotland defender then followed that up with 90 minutes and an assist against Standard Liege in Europe. After hearing he was fully fit, Arsenal fans expected him to play against the Blades. But Kolasinac did instead.

Arsenal now have fixtures coming up against Vitoria Guimaraes in the EFL Cup on Thursday night and Crystal Palace on Sunday. It will be interesting to see who Emery picks and Tierney is bound to get some game time under his belt.

Here are some tweets from Arsenal fans who now want to see Tierney take Kolasinac’s spot as the first-choice left-back at The Emirates.
