Mikel Arteta on if he thinks Arsenal’s Eddie Nketiah should be handed an England call-up

Liverpool vs Arsenal

Week three of the 2020/21 Premier League season is set to draw to a close on Monday evening, when Liverpool and Arsenal face off.

Jurgen Klopp’s outfit are, of course, the reigning Premier League champions, and have enjoyed a solid start to the new campaign.

However, their upcoming opponents will still no doubt believe that they can get something from the Anfield clash.

Arsenal have improved markedly under Mikel Arteta, especially against top clubs, and have beaten Liverpool twice in the last few months – including for the 2020 Community Shield.

Arteta on Nketiah

Mikel Arteta held his pre-Liverpool press conference on Friday.

During the presser, the young coach was drawn on a host of topics, including Eddie Nketiah.

The 21-year-old has been afforded a decent amount of game time since Arteta returned to north London, and has scored once in the league this season.

As such, with Arteta evidently a fan of Nketiah, who boasts a superb record for England’s under-21 side, the Arsenal boss was drawn on the possibility of his hitman being handed a call-up to Gareth Southgate’s senior Three Lions squad, to which he responded:

“Well, I don’t know. Obviously if he keeps performing in the way he has been with us in the last few months he will have a really good chance and as well, I think culturally, England and the actual manager are really brave with young kids.

“It’s up to them, they have to be consistent and keep doing what they’re doing at club level and then that opportunity will come in a natural way.”
