Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has lauded Oleksandr Zinchenko for his exceptional performance in their recent Premier League victory. The Gunners secured a 3-1 win against Burnley, with Zinchenko playing a crucial role in the game.
Zinchenko, who had been on the bench for the previous two matches, made a significant impact as a starter and even scored a remarkable goal from the edge of the area. Arteta praised Zinchenko’s contributions, emphasizing his attacking threat and defensive commitment.
The Ukrainian international’s statistics from the match were equally impressive, with 116 touches, 82 accurate passes, 14 duels won, and five successful tackles. He also maintained a perfect record with his long balls, completing all seven attempts.
As Arsenal prepares to face Brentford after the international break, Zinchenko’s recent form positions him as a strong candidate for selection in the upcoming fixture.
In the match against Burnley, Arsenal ascended to second place in the Premier League table with a resounding victory. Despite facing a resilient Burnley side, the Gunners managed to secure the win, thanks to goals from Leandro Trossard, William Saliba, and Zinchenko.
While they faced a momentary setback with Fabio Vieira’s dismissal, Arsenal’s tactical discipline ultimately led them to victory.
