    "I think a lot of coaches don’t look at the negatives now. They look at what he brings. Yeah they see the negativity but they’re more about what does he bring?

    "What does he bring that’s going to enhance us with the ball and I think Zinchenko, does far more good for them than bad.

    "I think, even his positions, when they’ve got the ball.

    "I don’t think Arteta really wants him to play as a left-back. I think he wants to play him like a Cancelo-type player, like he did in pre-season."
