    Arsenal star Kieran Tierney has reassured Gunners fans that he’s not injured, despite taking a late knock during his side’s Europa League victory over Zurich on Thursday night. And the Scotland left-back has told manager Mikel Arteta that he wants to play every match after scoring the only goal of the game against the Swiss side.
