Ex-Arsenal attacker Andrei Arshavin was a big part of the seven major honourswon during his time at Zenit Saint Petersburg in the Russian Premier League. Andrei Arshavin was one of the most important players for Zenit as they won seven major titles while he was on the playing rooster at the club.

Andrei Arshavin had three separate spells before he called it quit with professional football. He spent ten years in his first spell with the Zenit first team and the club won five major trophies during that time. He was sent on loan to Zenit from Arsenal in 2012 for his second spell at the club. Arshavin spent his third and final spell as a Zenit player over a period of two years, from 2013 to 2015.

In his first Zenit spell, Andrei Arshavin won the one Russian Premier League title, one Russian Premier League Cup title, one Russian Super Cup title, One UEFA Cup title and one UEFA Super Cup title. Arshavin has previously stated that the 2008 UEFA Cup final was one of the best moments of his career as he helped Zenit to the title via a 2-0 win over Scottish side Rangers. Igor Denisov and KostantinZyryanov scored in the last 20 minutes on the way to the win over the team from Scotland. Pavel Pogrebnyak and Danny scored a goal each either side of the half-time interval to lead Zenit to a 2-1 victory over Manchester United in the 2008 UEFA Super Cup. Serbian defender Nemanja Matic scored the lone goal for the Red Devils.

For his second spell at Zenit, Arshavin added another Russian Premier League title to his trophy haul at the end of the 2011/12 season. Andrei Arshavin was an Arsenal loanee when he won his second league title in Russia.

A third Russian Premier League title happened for Arshavin at the end of the 2014/15 season.


Premier League legend Michael Owen didn’t get his prediction for the game between hosts Everton and Tottenham Hotspur right after the two teams settled for a goalless draw in what was the first game of the Antonio Conte era in North London.

Tottenham Hotspur appointed Conte as their new manager at the start of last week and his first game in charge of the team came in the European Conference League as his team almost lost a three-goal lead against Dutch team Vitesse Arnhem at home before they held on for a 3-2 win. The game saw three red cards, with one for Tottenham Hotspur and two for their Dutch opponents.

Michael Owen predicted some Premier League matches from the latest round and he backed Everton to end their poor run of three consecutive defeats with a 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur. According to him, Conte won’t be able to make much impact on the Spurs team considering the fact that the Italian manager just took charge. The Everton game was his Premier League debut as Spurs manager and a second match overall.

The two teams didn’t score a goal in 90 minutes as Everton were able to stop their poor run of defeats which started on the back of an impressive 1-1 draw at the home of Manchester United just before the international break last month. The three-match losing run began with the 1-0 loss at home to West Ham United thanks to the second half header from Angelo Ogbonna. In the second game, Watford came from behind two times to record an impressive 5-2 away win over Everton. The West Ham and Watford defeats were followed by the 2-1 loss at Wolves.

Everton have spent much of this season in the top half but the recent run of one point from twelve points has left them in the bottom half of the league table.
