Arsenal ace Kieran Tierney has taken to Instagram to give fans an update on his injury after undergoing an operation on his dislocated shoulder.
The 22-year-old left-back was forced off in the early stages of our clash against London rivals West Ham last Monday.
According to BBC Sport, the Scotland international is set to be out for three months, this will be a massive blow to the team.
It seems as though the club signed the ace with the intention of making him our left-back for the foreseeable future, overtaking Sead Kolasinac – but Tierney’s injury troubles have hindered his start to life in north London.
Take a look at the defender’s update, courtesy of his Instagram story:

BBC Sport reveal that we signed the talented youngster from boyhood club Celtic for a fee of £25m on deadline day this summer.
Tierney has made 12 appearances across all competitions for the Gunners this season and it seems as though the injury setback has come at a time where the ace was just beginning to make the left-back spot his own.
With an injury as serious as a dislocated shoulder, the only thing fans and the club can hope for is for the ace’s lengthy recovery to go smoothly.
