Arsenal full-back Oleksandr Zinchenko said some of his colleagues laughed when he said, at the start of the season, that the London side could win the Premier League, but now the squad is beginning to believe it is possible.

Ukrainian international Zinchenko joined Arsenal from Manchester City before the start of the season, after winning the league title 4 times with the defending champion.

Zinchenko was decisive in Arsenal’s triumphant march, with his calm presence in defence, and his flexibility in attack.

And the 3-2 victory over “Manchester United” last night made “Arsenal” 5 points ahead of “City” at the top of the standings and has a postponed match.

“Honestly, when I just arrived and after the quality I saw… I obviously knew the Arsenal team, I knew them all before, but I still knew that on the field we have everything to achieve big things,” Zinchenko told Premier League TV. . I started talking in the dressing room, saying, ‘Guys, forget the top three or whatever, we need to think about the title. Some were laughing, but no one is laughing now, we are all dreaming.’” He continued: «But there are still a lot of games to play, and now you can see the return of (Manchester) United and City, as always. Let’s see what happens, but we need to move step by step.

“Arsenal” has not won the “Premier League” title since its indomitable team won the title in the 2003-2014 season under the leadership of its former coach, Arsene Wenger.

Coach Mikel Arteta’s team will then turn its attention to the “FA Cup”, as it will face the former Zinchenko team in the fourth round match at the “Etihad” stadium, next Friday.
