Pundit points out Arsenal’s weak point and expects them to concede a lot of goals

Jamie O’Hara has hinted Arsenal’s weak spot is their full-back, and he expects them to concede a lot of goals this season because of that.

The Gunners have added Oleksandr Zinchenko to their squad, and the Ukrainian has moved ahead of Kieran Tierney on the pecking order at the Emirates.

He is a very experienced and successful left-back, having spent his last few seasons on the books of Manchester City.

He brings something new and different to the Arsenal attack and he could be in the team for a long time.

However, O’Hara believes he is not defensively good enough and that could be a reason why Arsenal will concede many goals this season.

“Arsenal will concede goals, in the full-back areas you can get at them,” he said on TalkSport.

“I like Oleksandr Zinchenko but he’s not great one vs one so I think that will be an issue for them position-wise.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

We have added William Saliba to our defence in this window and the Frenchman has made it much stronger.

Zinchenko alone cannot stop a team from scoring, but if the whole backline communicates, they could cover for him when he steps forward.

If he struggles in one-on-one defending, we expect Mikel Arteta to help him get better at that.

  1. Deluded . Cun t always moaning about arsenal. Oh yeah we are all laughing at you after saying Chelsea gonna get destroyed by the scum . Lmao 🤣

  2. Zinny is an ace. But his lack of pace let’s him down. On the real, defensively, he’s no better than Nuno…IJS

  3. Yes,!!!! It is good to take not of
    Zinchenco’s weakness on the left side. That is where Arteta’s role as Coach comes in; to correct those identified
    weaknesses in AFC
    .When he is attacking, Gabriel Magahaes should cover for him
    The new role of Xhaka upfront is perfect. That’s what he plays for his Country. Ot helps in preventing FAULTS around the box and adds
    adequate Pressure on Opponents.
    This is a wonderful piece of innovation from Arteta as Coach

  4. Zinchenko and Ben white are not our fullbacks but rather back ups to KT and Tomiyasu respectively whom are among the best in EPL

  5. Why always bringing this Oha shit here what about spuds they are not going to concede goals abi. This spurs team is full of medocrity and time will tell before people start seeing it. Arsenal have a good squad and will be competing to win titles with mancity while spurs will be battling for top four.

  6. This is a prime example of why I stopped listening to Talks***t years ago.
    This idiot is on the same level as Dozy Durham… do yourselves a favour and stop reading and listening to this rubbish.
    If you need this kind of nonsense, just wait for the next post from Loose Cannon.

  7. How was City not conceding goals when he played as fullback. OHara does not understand football. He cannot read the system, he is rigid…does not understand that despite positional allocations, players are assigned specific roles to suit the desired system…. That is why Alexander Anold is one of the best yet defensively he has flaws…zinny was bought to add variety and dynamism and he excels with his positional drifting into Central midfield.he is a progresses the ball more creatively than KT….that is what Arteta wants .

    1. Why focus only on a left back. Why we use the term DEFENCE TEAM.
      Because there should be coordination and cover to reduce free space when a defender moved forward. Off this strategy is maintained for every match it becomes routine within the box.
      No way attackers can break through this strategy. New defence can be trusted to help the front line score.

  8. Believe your eyes, not the N17 imposter O’Hara. O’Hara’s attempted gaslighting shows him as the Tottenham wally. How many goals did Man City concede with Zinchenko playing, how many games did they lose? Our defense is a unit. Our Zinchenko, Gabriel Martinelli, Gabriel Jesus triangle on the left is fantastic. What we need is the Tomiyasu, Odegaard, Saka triangle to be equally fantastic, which they will as Tomiyaqsu gets match fit.

    1. Thank u sir we don’t want his concerns let arsenal be with ur trophyles Tottenham shut ur mouth Mr o hara

  9. The goal keeper should guard his post not to wonder too much inside that will prevents half of the the goals against other teams we need a steady keeper that will solve half of our problems at the back.
