Pundit backs Arteta to make the right selections after snubbing Tierney

Kevin Campbell was surprised to see Takehiro Tomiyasu start for Arsenal against Liverpool at the weekend instead of Kieran Tierney.

The Japanese star has lost his place as the first choice right-back at the Emirates to Ben White, which has kept him on the bench for much of this season.

He played as a left-back against Liverpool, a decision that shocked most fans with Tierney on the bench.

However, it proved to be the right call after he stifled Mohamed Salah, and the Egyptian could hardly do anything in the game.

Speaking about it, Campbell said to Football Insider:

“If I’m honest with you, it was a shock to see him starting. It is not because he is not a good player, it is because Tierney was fit. I thought he would have started.

“Tomiyasu can play multiple positions and he proved that again at the weekend. He did a real number on Salah. It was a good decision from Mikel Arteta.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Mikel Arteta has proven to be one of the finest managers around in the short time he has been on the job.

The ex-midfielder is delivering at the helm at the Emirates, and we trust him to keep improving the team.

This will require him to make the right choices, and some of them might seem wrong. We just need to trust him, regardless.

  1. REMINDER to Ad PAT that choosing another player in his place is NOT the same as “SNUBBING” the player not chosen.
    As most of us realise, Ad PAT ALREADY KNOWS THIS TRUTH.

    BUT IT SIMPLY DOES NOT SUIT THE DELIBERATELY HYPED HEADLINE AGENDA HE CONSTANTLY MISUSES ON JA. SIGH!

        1. Yes , of course the word “snubbing” is sensationalist or if you prefer , HYPE, designed as are all JA headlines whethe ror not written , as almos all are, by you Pat! And there was nothing wrong with your grammar, except in the narrow sense that you deliberately chose to use a wrong word.

          Most peoples grammar is misused because of lack of education but, as we all know, you have no such excuse PAT.

    1. FOR THE LAST TIME JON!
      I only write the headlines if I post the articles.

      I am just trying to remember the last time you made a comment about football, instead of your grammar fetish.
      Nope! Can’t remember….

  2. The pundit headline, won’t change prices in the market.

    The gaffer continues to display good judgment and Tierney would have learned from the experience
