Better Than Kieran, Arsenal Star Who Is Likely To Take Tierney's Position After Impressive Show

Well,it seems like Arsenal left back Kieran Tierney is not going to be missed anymore.This is after an impressive night from second choice left back Nuno Tavares.Tavares had his first full debut in the premier league yesternight as he played the full 90 minutes.

He started in the absence of first choice Kieran Tierney who had a small fitness issue.However from his display yesternight,he seems to be a man on a mission to take over from Kieran Tierney.

First of all he covered most distance on the pitch, reported to be over eleven kilometers.He also had most ball recoveries from the Arsenal players who were on the pitch.

He had some moments where he got into attacking positions and took good shots that unluckily didn't go through.

Now you are probably wondering what makes him better than Tierney?Tavares us good at defending, pressing and also has accurate passes going upfront.His shooting with both feet is also commendable.

Tierney on the other hand is good attacking wise but not as great defensively.Its Granit Xhaka that always cover up left back for him.After that impressive perfomance from Nuno, Kieran Tierney should be a worried man.Do you agree?
