Kieran Tierney has been out of action since December 9.
Ahead of Arsenal’s clash with Chelsea on Tuesday, the Gunners have provided a fresh update on the Scotsman’s progress.
Tierney has had surgery on his dislocated right shoulder suffered in the victory over West Ham last month, but is not likely to return to full training until March.
A statement on the club website read: “Right shoulder. Dislocated right should during West Ham Utd on December 9.
“Successful surgery completed.
“Rehabilitation process expected to take around three months, aiming to return to full training in March.”
Calum Chambers, who has ruptured the ACL in his left knee, has had surgery but will be out for between six and nine months.
Along with Sead Kolasinac, the Gunners currently have three first team defenders out and there is little good news about any of those sidelined.
THE STATS THAT SUM UP ARSENAL’S SEASON SO FAR
Arsenal have just 2 more wins this season than 20th placed Norwich, scored just one more goal than 18th Aston Villa, have only 1 more defeat than 2nd Man City, conceded just 2 more goals than 4th Chelsea and have more draws than top4 teams combined. What an achievement lmao
