It has been a great start for Eddie Nketiah since moving on loan to Leeds for the duration of the 2019/20 campaign.
The 20-year-old scored on his debut for the Whites in the first round of the EFL Cup against Salford City, and he followed that up with his second goal for the Yorkshire club against Brentford. That ended up being the winner and the only strike of the match.
Could Gabriel Martinelli become Arsenal’s star striker in the not too distant future? Deluded Gooner thinks so in the video below…
So, that’s two in two appearances for the Elland Road outfit. And, even more impressively, he only started one of the two fixtures, coming off the bench to strike against the Bees.
Arsenal fans appear to have been keeping an eye on Nketiah’s development with the Championship side, and they believe that he should be starting for Marcelo Bielsa and co. They have taken to Twitter to share their opinions of the England U20 international. You can see some of the best comments below.
And yet they won’t start him. @LUFC better start giving him more playing time

Surely Nketiah has to start for Leeds in the next match. The boy is ?

I want to see Pépé start in our next match, but I also want to see Nketiah start in the next match for Leeds.#Arsenal
