Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka has played down talks of tension with left back Kieran Tierney.

The two had an incident at the end of the club's 0-0 draw with Leeds United in the Premier League.

Tierney was looking to confront Ezgjan Alioski, who had been headbutted by Nicholas Pepe earlier in the game.

But Xhaka stopped him from creating an altercation, and admits he has no issues with Tierney.

He posted a photo on Instagram alongside Tierney with the caption: "The left foot union! No problems here."

The photograph showed them both smiling as they were seated on an airplane that took the team to their Europa League tie with Molde on Thursday.
