Arsenal manager Unai Emery has said that there’s no return date set for injured fullbacks Kieran Tierney and Hector Bellerin.
The Spanish tactician spoke about the two players during his pre-match presser on Friday morning ahead of the weekend’s game against Watford.
Unai Emery takes his Arsenal players on a short distance to face hosts Watford who have a new manager in Quique Sanchez Flores.
Ahead of the game on Sunday evening, Unai Emery gave an update on the injury status of both Hector Bellerin and Kieran Tierney.
The two players returned to full training earlier this week but Unai Emery has moved quickly to lower expectations by saying that they have to build their fitness by playing for the u23s before they are in contention for the Arsenal first team.
Scottish international left-back Kieran Tierney is yet to make an appearance for the Gunners since joining the club this summer in a £25m deal from Celtic.
Tierney underwent hip surgery in the summer and he’s yet to fully recover from that procedure.
On his part, Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin is working his way back to full fitness from a serious knee injury.
The Spaniard suffered a serious knee injury during the Premier League clash between Arsenal and Chelsea in January.
