“We have to win the next game, we have to be more focused. We are not allowed to go back. We have to go forwards.


Zinchenko told reporters.

“We are still playing in all competitions. We want to win everything this season and I hope we can do this.

“We are still alive and we can (afford) mistakes but we are going to come back stronger, I am pretty sure of that.”

Asked about Manchester City’s performance against the Red Devils, Zinchenko responded:

“It is all about how we started the game,”

said Zinchenko.

“To concede in the first minute is not easy to come back from.

“Afterwards I think we played much better than the opponent. We controlled the game, we created enough chances but we didn’t score. In this kind of big game if you want to win you have to score.

“United are also one of the best teams in the world, they have unbelievable players and they organise well defensively.

“It is not easy but still we have to learn a bit more how to come back in the game after these kind of situations.”
