Arsenal fans were very happy with Oleksandr Zinchenko's argument with fourth official

Arsenal fans are loving the footage of Oleksandr Zinchenko arguing with the fourth official, during Arsenal's win over Fulham, despite not being in the matchday squad, as you can see in the video below.

Zinchenko joined Arsenal in the summer, after six years at Manchester City where he won the Premier League six times, and won several cup competitions.

He has already become a bit of a fan favourite at the Emirates, despite only being there a couple of months, with the Gunners enjoying a great start to the season.

Last weekend, fans were loving the fact that the Ukrainian appeared to stop himself taking a thrown in for a moment so he could listen to the fans sing their song about him.

On Saturday night, he didn't even need to be in the matchday squad, due to an injury picked up on Friday, in order to advance his position with the supporters.

Fans were loving the passion he showed in the incident with the fourth official, having to be moved away by one of the coaching staff.

"Not even in the matchday squad, but still being as passionate as ever!" one fan said whilst adding the starry eyed emoji to his post.

"Arteta has got so many individual leaders in this team," another added.

"As an Arsenal fan and just a football fan in general when you support a club it’s things like this that carry value! You’ll never win all the time but pride and passion playing for ur clubs fans never forget," a third said.

The leadership was the angle picked up by another fan, who said, "The winning mentality, the fighting spirit we have been looking for all these days. A lot of leaders in this Arsenal team."

And the love as clear for one fan who said, "Slowly becoming my fav player in the squad along with Ødegaard."

The Gunners have started with a perfect record to the new campaign but it came under pressure on Saturday against Fulham, for the first time.

Aleksandar Mitrovic gave the Cottagers the lead in the second half, after Gabriel's mistake, before Odegaard equalised and then Gabriel made up for his part in the opener by scoring the winner.

That actually brought Zinchenko back into the frame, as the former City star ran to celebrate with his teammates and one steward thought he was a fan.
