OLEKSANDR ZINCHENKO'S remarkable Premier League run came to an end in Manchester City's draw with Tottenham yesterday.
Pep Guardiola must have thought his left-back was a lucky charm after he won EVERY league game he had played in.

Zinchenko's taste of victory lasted a whopping 23 matches since making his debut in December 2017.
The 22-year-old came off the bench against Swansea in a 4-0 victory then and would become an important player for City following Benjamin Mendy's serious injury.
Zinchenko went 20 months of Prem football without dropping any points and it would have been longer had VAR no denied City all three points last night.
Gabriel Jesus thought he had secured a 3-2 victory at the death when he fired home from a late corner.
But it was controversially ruled out when the technology deemed that the ball hit Aymeric Laporte's arm in the buildup.
Man City left the Etihad wondering how they didn't grab all three points after dominating the stats against Mauricio Pochettino's side.
The Premier League champions mustered 30 shots – the most Spurs have faced in eight years.
And Zinchenko claims the dressing room was deflated at the full-time whistle.
He said: "I can’t describe the feeling inside [the dressing room]. We dropped two points today, that’s it.
"I think we had a good game, we created a lot of chances to score goals but at the same time we conceded from the two chances that they had.

"But the result is not good for us but this season is going to be so long that I’m pretty sure that everyone is going to drop some points.
"They’re a good team. They had three shots and they scored twice.
"We have to improve ourselves. I think we played quite well. At the end they made the decision and we have to accept it, we can’t change anything."
