Oleksandr Zinchenko compares Arsenal star to Zinedine Zidane after Chelsea win

Oleksandr Zinchenko has compared one of his Arsenal teammates to Zinedine Zidane after their victory over Chelsea on Sunday.

Arsenal beat London rival Chelsea on Sunday, with Egyptian midfielder Mohamed Elneny coming off the bench late to help see victory.

Elneny has struggled to find a regular place in the starting eleven due to the excellent form of Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka this season, but when given the opportunity he has made a positive impact on the Arsenal team.

His skill and importance to Arsenal have not gone unnoticed, with defender Zinchenko labeling Elneny the “Egyptian Zidane”, as seen on Elneny’s Instagram below.

After their victory over Chelsea, Arsenal returned to the top of the Premier League, overtaking Manchester City, who beat Fulham with ten men on Saturday.
