Arsenal's New Signing Oleksandr Zinchenko Is The Second-Most Successful Player In Premier League History

Arsenal new boy Oleksandr Zinchenko is the second-most successful player in Premier League history in terms of win percentage.

Zinchenko, 25, joined Arsenal in a £32 move from Manchester City on Friday, signing a four-year deal at the Emirates.

He leaves City after six years at the Etihad, during which time he won four Premier League titles, one FA Cup and four EFL Cups.

The Ukraine international made 76 Premier League appearances for City, winning 62 of those matches to give him a remarkable win percentage of 81.6.

That puts him second on the all-time Premier League list of win percentages of players that have played at least 50 games, behind only former Chelsea winger Arjen Robben.

Former Netherlands international Robben won 55 of his 67 league games for the Blues between 2004 and 2007, giving him an astonishing win percentage of 82.1.

Third on the list is Zinchenko's former teammate at City, Aymeric Laporte, who has a win percentage of 81.5 after being victorious in 88 of his 108 Premier League appearances.

Eight of the top 10 belong to either current or former Manchester City players, a result of the team's incredible consistency in recent seasons under Pep Guardiola.

Phil Foden (79.6 per cent), Bernardo Silva (77.1 per cent), Ilkay Gundogan (76.4 per cent), Ederson (76.4 per cent), Gabriel Jesus (76.1 per cent) and Leroy Sane (75.6 per cent) also feature in the top 10, according to stats published by Opta.

Aside from Robben, the only other player in the top 10 not to have played for Manchester City is Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita, who is fifth on the list with a win percentage of 77.6.

Zinchenko becomes Arsenal's fifth signing of the summer transfer window and the second player to join from Manchester City this summer, joining Jesus at the Emirates.

Zinchenko joined up with his new teammates at their pre-season training camp in Orlando, Florida and could make his debut for the Gunners in Sunday's friendly against Chelsea.

Mikel Arteta's side then face Sevilla in their final warm-up game on Saturday before their opening match of the Premier League season away at Crystal Palace on August 5.
