Arteta grateful for Jesus and Zinchenko winning mentality

Arsenal will kick off the new Premier League campaign, with Mikel Arteta's side travelling to Selhurst Park to face Crystal Palace.

Mikel Arteta has heaped praise on new signings Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko as the Arsenal manager reckons the pair will feed his side with their winning mentality.

The Gunners have been very active in the transfer market, spending close to £120m this summer in another major shake-up for their squad, with £75million used to sign Brazilian forward Jesus and Ukrainian left-back Zinchenko from Premier League champions Manchester City this summer.

Both players could feature in the Premier League opener at Crystal Palace on Friday night, however, Arteta expects them to 'inspire those younger players' at the Emirates.

“Those players have been inspired by top players, top professionals, ruthless winners for many years,” said Arteta.

“They were looking at them, and now it’s their turn to do the same and inspire those younger players that we have in our squad to do the same and to show them what it takes to win, and the level of detail, hunger, and dedication that you need to keep winning.”
