Arsenal left-back, Kieran Tierney has sent Tottenham a warning ahead of Sunday’s north London derby after insisting his side will give their all to achieving European football for next season.

Following a mixed restart to Premier League football for the Gunners, Mikel Arteta’s side are still on course to push for Europa League qualification.

The left-back has insisted his side will be giving their all to help their chances of a European finish by the end of the season.

“Everybody wants to play European football and wants to finish as high up as we can,” the 23-year-old told the Daily Express.

“We will take it every game as it comes, every game is going to be tough in their own different ways but we look forward to the challenge.”

Arsenal could have increased their chances of a European finish had they have held on to their 1-0 lead against Leicester City on Tuesday night, however, a late Jamie Vardy goal reduced the Gunners to just a point (BBC).

Young Arsenal striker, Eddie Nketiah was shown a straight red card just four minutes after coming on as a substitute for a dangerous tackle so will miss the NLD.

“Every game is a challenge and we have had lots of games in the last few weeks. Tottenham is a massive game for the club and a massive game for the fans.”

You wouldn’t really expect him to say anything less. The NLD can go either way, form goes out of the window in any derby and it often comes down to who wants it more on the day. Unfortunately for us we have not shown much fight this season.
