Arsenal were on Thursday held by Crystal Palace to extend their unbeaten run to five and deny them an opportunity to climb the table.
Speaking after the match Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta noted that the players were fatigued due to the many games played recently by his side.
- Bayern Leverkusen sign Man. United’s Timothy Fosu-Mensah
- Gor Mahia confirm Carlos Manuel Vaz Pinto as new head coach
He however noted how hungry he was to get goals but he also praised his players for an outstanding spirit throughout the fixture.
Crystal Palace missed several chances in the game to overturn results and so were the Gunners who failed to go through the mid of the Premier League table.
The results leave Arsenal in position 11 and a reminder of their poor start in the Premier League. Palace on the other hand continue with their winless run siting a position below Arsenal.
Tierney was missing from the fixture after he sustained muscle tightness something that was also confirmed by the manager.
According to the Spaniard, the attacking winger will undergo further tests to establish the extent of his injury before they embark on treatement.
