Arsenal left it late but eventually did the job as they progressed to the next stage of the Europa League courtesy of an 87th-minute goal from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The Gunner won 3-2 as the Arsenal captain, who struck a brace, was supported by Kieran Tierney in the goalscoring charts on the night.
Being the kind of player who likes to leave it all on the pitch, Kieran Tierney did not mince his words when Benfica striker Darwin Nunez went down too easily during while trying to keep possesion for his side.
The Scot was one of the standout performers for the Gunners in their thrilling win at the Karaiskaki Stadium in Athens and showed the full range of his colourful vocabulary in the 84th minute of the game as he yelled “you’re a f***ing diving c**t man“.
Quite reminiscent of Rob Holding’s “he’s built like a brick sh*thouse, how has he gone like that?” rant at Adama Traore a few months ago, check out the video of Tierney shouting abuse at Darwin Nunez below –
