Arsenal fans were raving over youth star Eddie Nketiah last night after the young forward scored his third goal in four games for Leeds United.
The striker scored Marcelo Bielsa side’s opening goal in their penalty shootout loss to Stoke City in the Carabao Cup.
Nketiah’s goal in last night’s Carabao Cup tie saw him score his fourth goal in the competition in only his fourth appearance with his fifth shot on target (via Opta).
The Arsenal man is yet to start a Championship fixture for the Yorkshire side, with Patrick Bamford starting all five games thus far (via WhoScored).
Fans were ecstatic following Nketiah’s goal, with one fan in particular even tipping him as the heir to the No. 14 shirt which was previously worn by Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.
Here is a selection of tweets from Gooners after Nketiah scored for Leeds:

A rightful heir to the No. 14 shirt! I guess @ThierryHenry will agree to this.
