Another great performance for Ukraine last night. Intelligent and energetic midfield role rewarded with a finely crafted goal. His first though on scoring was to pay respect to a member of team staff who recently passed away with covid. He is a sound bloke and with good reason.

Wonder whether he will be given a chance in midfield this season. He surely won’t want to stay as a third choice left back again.

I hope so. He surely can do a Gundogan level job and improve as time passes. I like him. A lot.

Two near-identical goals now, maybe this time people will stop saying it was a cross...

Awaiting all the claims for him to start in midfield for us now. Our midfield will have decline immensely if zinchenko starts getting regular minutes there

Tbf he started a pre season game in midfield against Liverpool last season and had a decent game and plays well for Ukraine in that position. Clearly a talented footballer but he can’t starting at left back again next season, gets rinsed every time. So you either sell him or give him a chance in midfield. Should get a decent price for him either way.
