The Gunners came from behind to maintain their 100 per cent record in the Premier League against Fulham at the Emirates.
Aleksandar Mitrovic continued his fine form in front of goal to give the visitors a shock lead, capitalising on an error from Gabriel Magalhães and supplying a clinical finish.
Martin Odegaard's deflected strike levelled matters and then Gabriel made amends five minutes from time when he stabbed home after a mistake from former Gunners goalkeeper Bernd Leno.
It sparked euphoric scenes amongst the home fans and Zinchenko, who was out injured with a knee injury, raced down the touchline to join in with the celebrations.

He had a black Arsenal training top and shorts on but at first glance, a nearby steward assumed that he was a supporter rushing onto the turf when he started hugging the players.
Although brief, the hilarious video has gone viral on social media. The steward didn't quite get as far as putting hands on the Ukrainian, realising just before.
After four games, Arsenal are top of the league and remain the only side with a perfect record.
With a few shrewd additions, the North London side have looked much improved in their early fixtures and have been playing the kind of attractive football associated with Arsenal.
Saturday night was the first time they had been behind this term and manager Mikel Arteta was thrilled with the mentality on show.
"Obviously winning like this is really nice," Arteta told BT Sport, as per Arseblog.
"When you feel that adversity during the match after controlling the game and being on top of it, just hoping it was a matter of time and suddenly we made a big mistake, and they punished us.
"But then how we reacted, the connection again with those supporters, how we went about it, the mentality we showed. The first one Gabi, the way he played after that mistake.
"The team believed, we wanted to win the match, and in the end we managed to do it."
