Arteta delivers Tierney fitness update with Ryan racing to make Arsenal debut after Leno red card

Kieran Tierney Arsenal

Mikel Arteta has delivered an update on Kieran Tierney's fitness while also revealing that MatRyan is racing to make his Arsenal debut following Bernd Leno's red card.

The Gunners struggled in the Scottish full-back's absence, losing 2-1 despite having taken the lead in the first half of the contest via an impressive individual effort from Nicolas Pepe.

The game turned when David Luiz was sent off for a foul in the box, which allowed Ruben Neves to step up and level the scores from the penalty spot just before the interval.

Joao Moutinho fired home the winner from long range early in the second period, and Arsenal's misery was compounded when Leno was sent off for handling the ball outside the box 18 minutes from time.

Arteta revealed post-match that Tierney was never considered for selection due to the fact he is still in recovery, but he is hopeful that the 23-year-old can return to the fold in time for a meeting with Aston Villa on Saturday.

"He wasn’t close at all to playing on Tuesday," the Spanish head coach told reporters. "Hopefully in the next few days he feels much better and he can come into the team and help us in this moment where we have so many games."

Alex Runarsson came on to replace Leno in the latter stages of the game against Wolves, but could face competition from January signing Ryan for the spot between the sticks while the Gunners' number one serves aban.

Arteta says that Ryan, who is still awaiting his first appearance for Arsenal since joining the club on loan from Brighton, has been nursing a knock of his own over the past week, but is optimistiche will be available for selection at Villa Park.
