Zinchenko targets historic winning run

Man City's Oleksandr Zinchenko kisses Premier League Trophy

Man City left-back can add to his 22-match 100 per cent Premier League record after signing a new deal

After extending his contract with Manchester City this week, Oleksandr Zinchenko can make Premier League history this season. 

The left-back has signed a new deal at the Etihad Stadium until 2024 and is on a remarkable winning run with City.

Zinchenko has won all 22 of his Premier League appearances, the best 100 per cent record by any player in the competition's history.

Twenty of those appearances have been starts, as the 22-year-old helped Pep Guardiola's side to two Premier League titles.

Zinchenko's run also comfortably beats the next-best winning streak from the start of a player's Premier League career, held by two players.

Quinton Fortune won his first 12 matches for Manchester United, as did Zinchenko's team-mate, Phil Foden.

Another record in sight

If Zinchenko plays and wins in City's season opener at West Ham United on 10 August, he will match the best winning streak by a player in Premier League history.

Team-mate David Silva holds the record, winning 23 matches in succession up to 31 March 2018.

Indeed, Zinchenko has not tasted a league defeat since the start of the 2016/17 season.

After joining PSV Eindhoven on loan following his summer transfer to City, Zinchenko won seven and drew five of his 12 Eredivisie matches.
