Arsenal fans have been raving over young striker Eddie Nketiah after his equalising goal in Leeds United’s 1-1 draw away to Preston North End last night.
Eddie Nketiah or Patrick Bamford?
The youngster scored a brilliant looping header back over the Preston defence to snatch a point in the dying embers of the game as Marcelo Bielsa’s side avoided defeat.
His header last night was Nketiah’s fifth goal in just 386 minutes across all competitions for the Yorkshire side, with the 20-year-old averaging a goal every 77.2 minutes (via Transfermarkt).
As well as his minutes per goal ratio, the academy product has won Leeds five points this season in games against Brentford, Barnsley and Preston.
Bielsa defended his use of the on-loan striker after last night’s heroics, claiming Nketiah will have to ‘bide his time’ due to the options at his disposal (via The Metro).
Fans lauded Nketiah after his heroics last night as they took to Twitter to react.
