Arsenal youngster Eddie Nketiah is flying and we’re all along for the ride.
The 20-year-old has stamped his authority on proceedings following his loan move to promotion hopefuls Leeds United, and we’re loving it.
Nketiah’s late goal versus Brentford on Wednesday night, which handed Bielsa’s side all three points and a place at the top of the Championship table, is his second in as many appearances in all competitions. And if he keeps up that form, let’s just just say he’s well on the way becoming an Elland Road favourite – especially if he ends their soon to be 16-year hiatus from the top flight.
With Nketiah’s long-term allegiances sat cleanly on the lap of his parent club, Arsenal, who are currently in the process of rearing fellow youngsters Joe Willock and Reiss Nelson, interested parties hailing from the capital are keeping a close eye on their latest prodigy’s journey as he takes his place in line to become the “next big thing.”
And on this occasion it was none other than Highbury legend Ian Wright; “Eddie, Eddie!”
