    Good player, not-so-great game. It happens.

    This, feel he was rushed back for this though not a full excuse. He was poor but he come back stronger. Top professional

    Frustrating to see him in a 3 at the back. Yes the system allows him to push to a LB in possession but its not getting the best out of him.

    Whilst I have the same attitude about most of our players, Kolasinac or Holding would get murdered for this kind of performance.

    He got dominated and personally I don’t think it would be a one off. A motivated Salah does this to him 9 times out of 10 for me.

    did you even watch the end of last season? He thrived there, better than I've seen him play at LB by quite some margin.

    He just had one bad game, no generalisations necessary

    Just had a very bad game. Still a good player.

    I do think he's more suited to LB in a 4, because he doesn't have the passing range to play out from the back as a CB.

    His major strength is his engine down the flank and he is quite a good dribbler, but a below average passer.

    He's solid defensively normally so he looks good in our park-the-bus tactics, but it's not playing to his strengths.

    Who's generalising? Did I slate him for having a bad game? I simply said that I find it frustrating having him so deep. He's a solid defender but he offers so much going forward.

    Maybe it's just my dislike for the system that frustrates me but in no way did I have a pop at him based on yesterday's match.

    You're one of the only posters I see that don't gobble Tierney's nuts, he's a good LB but isn't this perfect amazing player people act like he is.

    But you see what I mean with the popularity contest right? Tesco bag fiasco was embarrassing.

    Agreed, Tierney is good but yeah he’s got some growing to do.

    I do wonder why he’s not playing the wingback position instead of AMN though. Has a better cross on him from the left and you’d think he would provide balance being naturally left footed. We could start Gabriel alongside Luiz as well.

    First poor performance in Arsenal shirt and it was against the best team in league, against one the best players in the league in Salah and playing at His non natural postion of CB.

    He’s placing his hands behind his back when defending, probably scared of conceding a handball, and it’s affecting his defending a bit.

    Luiz was doing it a lot as well, not surprised with the silly law and diabolical refereeing.

    Will miss the city clash due to having to isolate for 14 days.

    The Scottish FA can **** off. If we test him next week and it comes back negative he plays. How many of Liverpool’s players had to self isolate after being in close contact with Mane? None of them. They all got tested and carried on.
