Arsenal have kept their unbeaten run in the Premier League intact after they managed to pick up a hard-fought draw against Leicester City on Tuesday.

The Gunners took the lead in the first half but with about a quarter still left to play, they went down to 10 men which helped the Foxes make a comeback into the match.

The draw means Arsenal are now nine points off of the top-four and according to Kieran Tierney, their new-found confidence stems from their boss Mikel Arteta. But while praising the manager, the left-back has made it clear that the rebuilding process is not an overnight job.

Tierney said, as per the Standard: “The boss. He has been brilliant. We had a period to work closely and obviously coming back we had a few weeks to work without games.

“The first few results we got weren’t ideal, but we are building something here. It won’t happen overnight but we’re progressing well.

“I think it gives us confidence, the run we’ve been on… We want to keep the unbeaten run going, that was the main thing with 10 men after conceding the goal.

“They’re going to have all the ball and put the pressure on us and we coped well again. Eight minutes added on is more pressure as well but I think we’ve done well.

“Obviously, we wanted to win but I’m glad we didn’t get beaten.”

If Arsenal hadn’t gone down to 10 men then they could have picked up all three points but with the draw, their hopes of making a final fight for a Champions League spot next season seems to have fizzled out.

And things are not going to get any easier as they take on Tottenham Hotspur in the North London Derby on Sunday following which they host Liverpool at the Emirates next week.
