Arsenal have revealed that Kieran Tierney could return to full training later this week after overcoming a minor groin injury.
Arteta clarified after the game that Tierney had only picked up a minor concern and the Gunners have now revealed that the 23-year-old could resume regular training in the coming days.
“Tight left groin on Saturday,” An update on the club’s official website read. “Settling well and aiming to resume full training later this week.”
The north London side are scheduled to face Leicester City on the road in the third round of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night.
Tierney is unlikely to be fit for the encounter. Kolasinac may continue on the left side of a three-man central defence for the Gunners.
