On Friday, Rodgers said in a Press conference:-

“They signed the two players who are game-changers for them in terms of mentality.

“When you have got the likes of Kieran Tierney on the bench, who is an outstanding player, and because of Zinchenko playing, it shows you the quality of the squad that they have.”


Kieran Tierney is currently struggling under Arteta due to a lack of game time. Zinchenko is playing in the left-back position and Arsenal Legend Ian Wright praised the Ukrainian for his performance, this season.

Tierney has also struggled with injuries, which hindered his growth at Emirates. He might leave the club in the next transfer window, a lack of game time.
