The Ukrainian is accustomed to being on a winning team because he won four Premier League championships, League Cups, an FA Cup, and both while playing for City. As Arsenal will strive for a top-four finish this season, his statement to his Arsenal teammates hints that he anticipates the same at his new club.

With a convincing 6-0 thrashing of Sevilla, the Gunners capped off a strong preseason campaign. New additions Oleksandr Zinchenko and Gabriel Jesus all made an impression on all the games they featured in during preseason.
The manager is thrilled to have signed Zinchenko. Arteta says he’s looking forward to having the distinct mentality that helped him battle his way from being an outsider to a crucial player on Pep Guardiola’s side in the locker room.
