Manchester City: Fans slam Oleksandr Zinchenko’s display v Newcastle

Manchester City: Fans slam Oleksandr Zinchenko’s display v Newcastle -Manchester City News

Flocking to Twitter, lots of Manchester City supporters were less than impressed with the performance of winger Oleksandr Zinchenko despite a comfortable 4-0 victory away to Newcastle United.

The Sky Blues battled to a comprehensive win at St. James’ Park despite not being at their best, with City maintaining their stay at the top of the Premier League table.

Pep Guardiola’s side, who are looking to retain their top flight crown, maintained their imperious winning run thanks to goals from Ruben Dias, Joao Cancelo, Riyad Mahrez and Raheem Sterling on Tyneside.

Dias took advantage of lacklustre Newcastle defending to head home from close range early on as Cancelo then doubled City’s lead with a sumptuous individual goal from long range.

Mahrez and Sterling then sealed the result with their second half finishes, but despite an eventual routine win, many Sky Blues saw fit to criticise Zinchenko for his performance.

Man City fans slam Sterling…

Despite grabbing a brilliant assist for Mahrez, some City supporters thought the Ukraine international didn’t have his best afternoon, with SofaScore revealing that he gave the ball away more often than any other player in Guardiola’s side (14) whilst proving unreliable at times.

Taking this into account, a few Sky Blues supporters weren’t impressed – check out some of their verdicts below:

“Tell you what, fantastic cross for Mahrez but bar that, Zinchenko has been proper bobbins here. He looks tired, unfocused and sloppy. Fortunate to have played such an attacking flat note in that respect.”
