The move caught the attention of a number of fans on Twitter, who pointed to Tierney’s “no nonsense” style.

“Footballers usually enter the stadium with a Gucci or LV washbag. Not Tierney,” said one social media user.

“Never mind building Wengers statue @Arsenal get Tierneys built asap, Tesco bag included.”

Meanwhile, another fan said: “Kieran Tierney is just an old school no nonsense footballer.

“Turns up with his kit in a Tesco bag, tucks his shirt into his shorts, how can you not like him”.

Arsenal triumphed 2-1 thanks to a last-minute winner from Dani Ceballos, sending them through to the FA Cup semi-finals for the first time since 2017.
