Keiran Tierney returned to the starting xi in yesterday’s win. The Scottish left back not only had a good game, but bagged an assist. While speaking with Arsenal player after the match, he was full of praise for Pepe and Gabi Martinelli.
“That just shows you he is a special player, and in a moment like that he can produce a bit of magic. That’s what we needed,” Tierney told Arsenal Player.
“It will be massive for him, it’s a hard place to come and hit the ground running. It’s a massive club, in a massive league. He deserves that because he’s been working hard every single day.”
Tierney who set up a goal for young forward Martinelli was also full of praise for the Brazilian.
“I love playing with Gabi, even in training as well – but I hate playing against him!” he said. “He’s a great player.
“You can see how clinical he is in front of goal. He’s good at everything – there’s not a negative I can say about Gabi. He’s got the lot.”
