The excitement levels have risen among the Arsenal faithful after Eddie Nketiah scored his first goal while on loan at Leeds United.

The on-loan Arsenal man was in the right place at the right time as he turned in a cross from Helder Costa to open the scoring during the club’s Carabao Cup tie versus Salford City.
Leeds emerged 3-0 winners as they progressed to the next round of the Carabao Cup.
Nketiah, 20, featured heavily in Arsenal’s pre-season plans, turning out in every pre-season game for his parent club as well as scoring a brace versus Fiorentina.
However, it was decided that Nketiah would go out on loan, and thus he completed a deadline day move to Marcelo Bielsa’s side.
Fans seem excited after the England youth international’s goal last night and took to Twitter to celebrate.
Here is a selection of tweets from the North London faithful:
COME ON EDDIE, EDDIE EDDIE EDDIE
