Here are your Arsenal evening headlines for Monday, December 14.
Kieran Tierney apologises to supporters
After Arsenal lost their fourth successive home match against Burnley on Sunday evening, the first time the club has suffered such a run since 1959, Kieran Tierney admitted that his and his teammates’ performances have not been good enough, stating that this is not what the fans deserve.
Arsenal now sit in 15th in the Premier League. It is their worst start to a season since 1974/75 and has seen increasing pressure pile on Mikel Arteta and the players. And Tierney admitted that things are not going well.
“It’s not good enough,” said the Scot when asked about the situation. “There is no way to disguise it. It’s terrible, to be honest. It’s not what we are, not where we are as a club.

He then added: “Everything is going wrong. We are working on the right things, we are doing the right things in training, we are working as hard as we can, but just things that can go wrong are going wrong.
