OLEKSANDR ZINCHENKO celebrated madly in the stands at the Emirates after Bukayo Saka’s winning goal against Liverpool.
Arsenal ace Saka, 21, stepped up from the spot to wild the Emirates and face the Gunners FOURTEEN points over the red.
In a thrilling back-and-forth game, the hosts were awarded a penalty when Thiago kicked Gabriel Jesus in the leg from behind.
Saka coolly slipped past Alisson in what turned out to be the winning goal.
And Zinchenko, who missed the game through injury, absolutely loved Saka’s calm shot.
Footage released on social media showed the Ukraine left-back jumping from his seat as the ball hit the back of the net.
He raised both fists in the air and looked up at the sky with joy.
The 25-year-old then roared tremendously as he celebrated the goal.
Arsenal clung to all three points to reclaim first place in the Prem after an eighth win in nine games.
Mikel Arteta’s side have managed without signing Zinchenko in the summer for £32million, who has picked up a muscle injury.

The gaffer said of the left-back before the game: “He had a muscle injury again and we’ll see how it is in the next few days.”
On the pitch, Gabriel Martinelli put the Gunners ahead after just 58 seconds before Darwin Nunez hit back for the visitors.
Saka restored the hosts’ lead just before half-time, but Roberto Firmino equalized again.
But in the end, Saka’s penalty with 14 minutes left was the difference.
