Kieran Tierney will be out for four to six weeks with a knee injury, leaving him facing a race against time to be fit before the end of the season.

Left-back Tierney suffered ligament damage in his left knee in Arsenal's 3-0 home defeat against Liverpool on Saturday and the extent of the setback was confirmed following a scan on Tuesday.

Scotland defender Tierney will be sidelined for at least a month though the worst case estimate - a return to training within six weeks - means Arsenal's final league game of the season could come too soon.

Arsenal play their last league game of the season against Brighton on May 23, three days before the Europa League final is due to take place.

We're going to have to go day by day, see how Kieran is feeling, see how that knee is reacting and how he can get close to play in time and train with the team and depending on where we are and how he is feeling we'll make that decision.

Tierney's diagnosis also means Scotland face a nervous wait on the fitness of one of their most important players ahead of this summer's European Championship.

On Tierney's chances of returning in time for the Euros, Arteta said: 'Again it will depend how things evolve in the next few weeks.
