Arsenal head coach Unai Emery has confirmed Kieran Tierney will feature against Standard Liege in the Europa League.

Tierney has managed just 77 minutes of football since joining Arsenal from Celtic and the defender missed Monday night's 1-1 draw at Manchester United after suffering a small setback in his recovery from a groin injury.

Emery has confirmed Tierney will face Standard Liege at the Emirates on Thursday as Arsenal look to continue their winning start to their Europa League campaign.

"He still needs time, confidence, training and playing. Tomorrow is a good opportunity, he is ready to play," said Emery.

"It will take minutes and take confidence, he will be able to show us his progress."

Tierney was left out of the latest Scotland squad on Tuesday to face Russia and San Marino and Emery believes it is too soon for the full-back to return to the national side.
