Following Man City’s 4-0 win over Watford at Vicarage Road on Tuesday evening, despite an otherwise brilliant outing for the Sky Blues, many City supporters have slammed makeshift left-back Oleksandr Zinchenko – with some going on to claim he is too ‘weak‘ defensively and not ‘good enough’.
Goals from Raheem Sterling (2), Phil Foden and Aymeric Laporte set Pep Guardiola’s side on their way to a comfortable afternoon against the Premier League strugglers, with the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Joao Cancelo also impressing.
Should Man City sell Zinchenko?
Yes, make it happen Txiki
No, still young and plays in the wrong position
The resounding victory sets up our last match of the campaign against Norwich City this weekend, with our Citizens then taking on Real Madrid in the Champions League.
Indeed, City’s second leg at home to Madrid could be make-or-break in terms of defining the season, and many Sky Blues think Cancelo should definitely start over Zinchenko – with some supporters imploring Guardiola to ‘get rid‘ of the 31-cap international.
Here’s what they had to say about the Ukrainian down below.
We have too many LBs so probably not. But hopefully we can see him there again and get rid of Zinchenko

yep so true, I hope zinchenko does leave for the sake of our club tbh, love his passion for this club but he really isn’t good enough

Hopefully Stones, Otamendi and Zinchenko have played their last minutes City

Anything is better than Mendy and Zinchenko tbf. Cancelo has already pleased me with one performance tonight than mendy has since the restart.

It’s as clear as day that laporte’s injury defined the season… the other cb’s may look ok when Laporte or kompany were alongside them… but on their own it’s been a mess.. and Mendy, zinchenko have looked weak defensively… the Chelsea game was them in a nutshell

Regardless of it being Watford or Real, Cancelo has shown he has the skill and ability to not only defend on the left but also attack on the left as well. Whose gonna play there as good as him? Zinchenko? Real will eat Zinchenko alive.
