Report: 25-year-old Arsenal player was suffering with illness like Granit Xhaka on Saturday, he still played vs Wolves
The Gunners picked up an important 2-0 win at Molineux thanks to a second-half brace from their captain Martin Odegaard.
Xhaka was forced to come off inside the first 15 minutes of the game due to suffering with illness.
But the 30-year-old wasn’t the only player in the Arsenal side who was struggling with stomach issues.
Zinchenko suffering with illness
According to the Evening Standard, three or four more Arsenal players were also suffering with illness over the weekend, including Zinchenko.
The Ukrainian managed to see out the whole game and put in a solid display too. The 25-year-old made his return to action at Stamford Bridge the weekend before after being sidelined with a calf injury.
And it seems he’s had to deal with another setback but was clearly eager to play through it.
Zinchenko has already missed nine league games through injury this season after a slightly unfortunate start to his Arsenal career.
But the former Manchester City man has really impressed when he’s played under Mikel Arteta so far.
It’s impressive that he managed to play a full 90 minutes while suffering from an illness. Gunners fans will love to hear that Zinchenko is already clearly committed to the cause in north London.
Zinchenko will remain at London Colney over the next month after Ukraine missed out on qualification to the World Cup.
It should hand him the opportunity to build up his fitness as Arteta’s squad will head out to a training camp in Dubai.
Arsenal will face-off against Lyon and AC Milan during the tour and Zinchenko will be hoping to rebuild his match fitness.
