Arsenal have been handed a huge boost ahead of the season run-in, with Kieran Tierney set to return to the fold before the end of the campaign.
There were fears Tierney could miss the rest of the season after he picked up a nasty looking injury against Liverpool. But the Scot, according to the BBC, is said to be on track for a quick return.
It is claimed Tierney will be back training in the next few weeks and could even feature in May. It means, should Arsenal get to the Europa League final, that Mikel Arteta may well be able to call on Tierney if needed.
The news is also a major boost for Scotland, who want to take Tierney to the Euros this summer. The left-back has formed a crucial relationship with Andy Robertson at international level.
For Arsenal, just the thought of having Tierney back for a few games should be a boost. The Gunners need all their best players available for the run-in, and Tierney is certainly in that category.
