3. Oleksandr Zinchenko
It was the double change of Zinchenko and Vieira that electrified the Emirates Stadium and got the fans rocking again. The Ukrainian played very confidently, playing difficult passes very precisely and energising the team.
He overlapped well with Martinelli and sent in some dangerous crosses, but it was his influence in the middle of the park that was most impressive. He gave Arsenal a rhythm and an urgency that the team didn’t have before.
It is true that he gave away the ball that then led to a corner that Fulham equalised from, but that was the only real blemish on an otherwise very impressive display.
With Partey so far inverting from the right-back position but not looking up to the task, Arsenal fans should be very reassured by the return of Zinchenko.
