Granit Xhaka Pushes Teammate Kieran Tierney Away After He Tried To Confront Ezgjan Alioski

Kieran Tierney wasn't happy with Ezgjan Alioski after Arsenal's draw with Leeds United, and the full back had to be dragged away from the opposition player.

Arsenal were somewhat lucky to come away with a 0-0 draw against Leeds on Sunday evening, as they struggled for much of the game and the hosts hit the woodwork on three occasions.

Mikel Arteta's side came to life more towards the end of the game after Nicolas Pepe got himself sent off for headbutting Alioski.

Whilst it could be argued that the Macedonian winger made a meal of it, there's no doubt that Pepe deserved to see red for the incident.

Clearly after the match Tierney was still angered by the former Lugano player for his role in 'getting' his teammate a red card.

The Scottish left back had to be pushed back by former Gunners' captain Xhaka, and then dragged away by a member of staff, as other fans were shaking hands.

Pepe's red card means he misses the next three Premier League games, against Wolves, Spurs and Burnley, though he is available for the two Europa League games in that spell.

Whilst Tierney may have had issue with Alioski, it was clear after the game that manager Arteta only laid the blame at the feet of his own player, calling the former Lille winger's actions 'unacceptable.'

It might be a while until the manager trusts the winger again.
