Oleksandr Zinchenko has shown exactly why he is considered one of the three most technically gifted players at Man City.
Zinchenko left City in the summer to join Arsenal in a £30m deal and has already impressed at the start of the 2022/23 season.
Not only is he a brilliant defender, but his skills have also caught the eye.
In a training clip released by Arsenal, the Ukraine defender can be seen breaking down a goalkeeper challenge.
The team lines up at the boundary line and must keep the ball in the air while running towards the halfway line. The loser must pay for breakfast for all of their teammates.
Zinchenko is then seen flying along the touchline, controlling the ball with ease, yards in front of his teammates.
His skills with the ball should come as no surprise as he has been named as one of the most technically gifted players at his former club.
Kyle Walker named him alongside Bernardo Silva and Riyad Mahrez in the top three, in no particular order.

“He’s amazing…he’s amazing,” Walker said of Zinchenko. “Two touches, head tennis, he is so good, so good. But then you leave out the likes of [Kevin] De Bruyne, Phil Foden, [Jack] Grealish, [Joao] To cancel. But they don’t come close to those three.
Zinchenko may have been unlucky as City had an incredible full-back in Cancelo ahead of him on the left.
But now at Arsenal he has the chance to show that talent on a regular basis.
