Interim Arsenal manager Freddie Ljungberg has provided an update on the injuries suffered by two of his players during the Premier League clash with West Ham United.

The Arsenal legend gave the injury update during his post-match interview after his team secured a first win in ten matches in all competitions via a 3-1 victory over the Hammers.

Arsenal defenders Hector Bellerin and Kieran Tierney suffered various injuries during the West Ham game.

Spanish international Bellerin was named in the Arsenal starting XI but he had to drop out of it after he felt a little problem in his hamstring and the Barcelona Academy graduate was subsequently replaced by Ainsley Maitland-Niles, while left-back Sead Kolasinac took his own place on the Gunners bench.

On Bellerin, Freddie Ljungberg said that the Spaniard was not at full fitness after the warm-up and that prompted the decision to leave him out of the squad having been named in the starting XI.

Summer signing Tierney had to come off in the first half of the game as a result of a shoulder injury with Sead Kolasinac replacing the Scottish international in the Arsenal XI.

On Tierney, Freddie Ljungberg said that the Scottish international will visit the doctor at the hospital to ascertain the severity of the shoulder injury.
