Zinchenko seemed irritated as he reprimanded Ilkay Gundogan, shaking his finger in his face. Without another Arsenal player in sight, Gundogan laughed it off with a ruffle of his hair, as Jack Grealish smiled at Zinchenko.
The cameras then captured an increasingly enraged Zinchenko giving a death stare before being stopped by ex-teammate Joao Cancelo. Ruben Dias was seen chuckling as the left-back was calmed down.
ITV’s official Twitter account posted the unusual exchange with the caption: “Not sure if Zinchenko is happy or upset here,” pointing to the way City’s players looked to be joking with him.
“He’s mad,” one Twitter user remarked. Why would you write ‘I’m not sure’? He’s enraged!!”
Another tweeted: “Are they trying to play mind games? Very weird,” while a third wrote: “This will fire up Zinchenko more for league game,” in reference to the two sides’ crucial upcoming Premier League clash.
Zinchenko was yellow carded late in the game for a challenge on Bernardo Silva, after which he roared in despair.
