Kieran Gibbs is a left back who developed through the academy at Arsenal, signing a professional contract in September 2007. Kieran had previously been attached to Wimbledon as a schoolboy and was initially a winger before switching to defence. He is a quick player who is firm in the tackle and able to cross the ball accurately. Kieran made his first-team debut for the Gunners in a Carling Cup match in October 2007, and has slowly established himself at the club. He was second choice to Gael Clichy in 2010-11 and although he missed time in the first half of the season through injuries he made the line-up for the final three Premier League games of the season. The highlight of his campaign came in August though, when he won his first full cap for England, coming on for the second half of the friendly with Hungary. © 2011 - PFA Player Profiles
