BLACK HOLE: Despite having two crucial passes, Oleksandr Zinchenko became Arsenal’s vulnerability as West Ham consistently pounded him.

Oleksandr Zinchenko continued to have a forgettable day against West Ham and his position was exploited by opponents many times.

Arsenal entered this match with great determination. They need a win to end the first leg in first place in the group. However, West Ham has never been an easy opponent for the big guys.

David Moyes’s team displayed a tight defensive posture and when needed, they were ready to throw unexpected punches.

In the 13th minute, Oleksandr Zinchenko’s mistake led to the Gunners’ first goal. It was a relatively uncomfortable cross from Emerson Palmieri, but Zinchenko could clearly clear the ball better.

The Ukrainian defender’s failed clearance put Arsenal’s defense on alert. Then Tomáš Souček kicked it into the net.

The early loss made it extremely difficult for Arsenal to play.

The home team had to raise their squad high to find the equalizer. However, when the goal was nowhere to be seen, Arsenal continued to concede at the beginning of the second half.

Obviously, this is a chain breakdown.

It’s not surprising that Zinchenko was rated 6.8 by Sofascore, the lowest number among the four defenders. He had 2 key passes, but was exploited quite a lot by Mohammed Kudus.

Mikel Arteta recognized Arsenal’s vital point and took Zinchenko off in the 64th minute. However, that move was not enough to help Arsenal get even a draw.

His carelessness in possession was also costly for the Gunners, despite only yielding the ball eight times. Arsenal’s captain Martin Odegaard (25) lost the ball more often than any player on Thursday. Zinchenko also lost four of his five ground duels, per SofaScore, ranking 13th.
