KIERAN TIERNEY was backed to one day captain Arsenal after the "humble" Scot was pictured carrying his gear in a Tesco bag before playing Sheffield United.
The left-back featured from the start in the Gunners FA Cup quarter-final clash at Bramall Lane.
But even before kick off he was receiving praise from fans online after modestly arriving with a Tesco bag.
One said: "Look at Tierney with his Tesco bag fs. Love this boy, future Arsenal captain."
Another said: "Absolutely love and hate Kieran Tierney showing up with a Tesco bag haha. He’s a real one that’s for sure."
Tierney has only played three times under new manager Mikel Arteta, having been sidelined since December with a shoulder injury.
But the 22-year-old admitted Arteta's impact at the Emirates has been incredible.
He told Sky Sports: "I've seen all his video meetings, I've been in the meetings together as a team, before the games, after the games and just his analysis is amazing.
"In Dubai for the winter break I was doing some one-on-one work with him and that's when I realised this is brilliant, I'm learning a lot in a rehab session.
"He knows what's going to happen in a game and how it's going to happen and what you should do, where you're going to get pressed from and where your options should be.
"You should know where the left-mid is going to be and the centre-mid so you can just play in sync, everybody is using one brain and I think that's perfect.
"Hopefully when I'm back fit I can get the chance to play and just build up fitness and confidence again."
