Zinchenko encouraged by battling display

CALM: Zinchenko slows things down

CALM: Zinchenko slows things down

Oleksandr Zinchenko believes City were a shade unlucky to end up losing to Liverpool.

The Blues had led through a second-half Leroy Sane goal before Mo Salah and an injury time Sadio Mane penalty gave the Reds a 2-1 win at the MetLife Stadium.

“I think we played well,” said Zinchenko. “We didn’t take all the chances we had but, in my opinion, we should have had at last one penalty.

“We have a lot of young players out there who have never played in this squad and they all did well. Of course, we have to improve, but given the young players we had out there, overall, we were unlucky.”

Zinchenko, who started out as holding midfielder before reverting to defence in the second half says that despite losses to Dortmund and Liverpool, the US tour has so far been a positive experience.

“We tried to play in our normal way and sometimes we did well, sometimes not. This is about pre-season. We were certainly not disgraced.

“We know we have to improve and that’s it. You have to feel free in this kind of game and show the quality and I think we did that at times.

“There is a long way to go before we begin in the Premier League and hopefully, next season will be even better than last one, especially in the Champions League.”
