Arsenal fans will love what Liverpool star Andy Robertson has said about Kieran Tierney

Liverpool star Andy Robertson has given a glowing verdict of Arsenal's Kieran Tierney ahead of the pair's battle this weekend.

Arsenal welcome Liverpool to the Emirates Stadium on Saturday as the Premier League returns from the international break, and that will see Tierney and Robertson go head-to-head.

The pair played together as recently as Wednesday when they combined brilliantly on the right to dismantle Faroe Islands with Tierney, in particular shining.

And while they will be rivals come this weekend, Robertson didn't hold back in his praise of Tierney and his three assists on the international stage, also suggesting the so-called rivalry between the two is not an accurate reflection of their relationship.

"KT was different class – three assists. Backing it up, helping me out, overlapping, always giving me options," said Robertson after the game.

"People who say we can’t play together maybe got proven wrong. A lot gets said about me and KT, but we just get on with it.

"Now KT’s fully fit and flying at Arsenal, he showed that in the three games this week. I think since the Serbia game we’ve linked up pretty well down that left-hand side.

"When he goes, I sit and he always gives us an option and I always try and help him out defensively and going forward.

"We are different players, we play the game differently and tonight he was different class. It’s a pleasure to play in this team and hopefully there’s a lot of big things to come from us."

That's an opinion Arsenal fans will agree with given just how much Tierney has impressed since joining Arsenal on a deal worth around £25million in 2019.
