Oleksander Zinchenko joined Arsenal in the summer & has played a huge role in The Gunners being top of the Premier League this season. Mikel Arteta had an idea and The Ukrainian fullback has allowed him to turn that idea into a reality.

Unlike Kieran Tierney, the 25-year-old is comfortable with the ball at his feet. Zinchenko plays in midfield for the Ukraine national side and you can tell.

If not Gabriel Jesus, Zinchenko is arguably Arteta’s most significant signing. Kieran Tierney was one of the first names on the team sheet before the Ukranian’s arrival which shows just how good he’s been for Mikel Arteta so far this season.

Kieran Tierney told the Scottish Sun:

“What a player he is. He’s such a great guy as well. It’s good competition for me. I’ll just keep trying every day to do the best I can, work hard, and, when called upon, give everything. I’ve not started many games. But there’s also only a few games where I’ve not come on. It’s a long season, and it’s not just 11 players needed; it’s the full squad.

There are different ways you can vent your disappointment. One way is to not try and openly show you don’t care. But there’s another way – you work hard and give your all for the team; you try to push as much as you can, and, when called upon, you give everything.”

Mikel Arteta will love this type of attitude from Kieran Tierney & if he keeps working hard, I’m sure he’ll still have a big part to play in this Arsenal side come the end of the season.
