Revealed: How Mikel Arteta is key to Eddie Nketiah’s Arsenal success

Eddie Nketiah scored a brace on Sunday to earn Arsenal a huge victory.

Eddie Nketiah has been forced to step up for the Gunners in the last month due to an injury to Gabriel Jesus.

The Brazilian was injured at the 2022 World Cup and remains out of action.

With Jesus out, Arsenal’s title hopes were expected to dwindle as Nketiah has never really proven himself in the Premier League on a consistent basis.

However, he has certainly stepped up in recent weeks. Nketiah has scored four in his last five, including the winner on Sunday vs Manchester United.

Now, Fabrizio Romano has explained how Mikel Arteta fought to keep Nketiah at the Emirates last summer:

“What a performance by Eddie Nketiah yesterday as his brace helped Arsenal to a 3-2 win over Manchester United!” Romano wrote. “Despite rumours, he was not close to leaving in the summer – Arsenal were clear in the plan to let Folarin Balogun leave on loan and keep Nketiah.
