For most players a pre-season friendly is little more than a chance to build some fitness and get some minutes under their belt as they head into the new season.
That’s not always possible when you have a player like Kieran Tierney who is 100MPH at all times, and it appears that he was straight back to his usual ways in the friendly vs Watford today.
There came a point where there was a flashpoint, and Tierney actually had to be held back by Mikel Arteta:
