The gunners progressed to the next round of the EFL Cup after successfully beating Norwich City at the Emirates tonight with youngster Eddie Nketiah being the hero as he helped Arsenal come from one goal down to winning the match in the extra time. The 18 year old saved Arsene Wenger from what seemed to be going to be a big embarrassment to his team by sticking the back of the net twice to gift the gunners a hard fought win.
Arsene Wenger begun the match with a mature squad and the lineup included youngster Reiss Nelson who has since earned the trust of the manager in the last past few weeks due to his impressive performance in the League two this year so he was chosen and started the match but was later replaced by Eddie Nketiah who won the match for the gunners in the extra time. Reiss Nelson gave out a funny description of the match via his social media accounts saying it was a ‘mad night ‘.

Reiss Nelson made his breakthrough into the Arsenal squad three months ago when the gunners were in their pre season tours in Beijing and Sydney and the young Englishman was very impressive there and caught the eye of the Arsenal boss who has started selecting him in matches in Europa League and the EFL Cup.
Reiss Nelson is loved by. most Arsenal supporters because his very skillful and is good at moving the ball forward but what is worrying them so much is that Arsene Wenger is playing the youngster as a wing back yet the player deserves an attacking role, the manager has always history of changing positions of players like former gooner Joel Campbell who was a striker was converted to a winger by the French manager.
