Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has heaped praise on young striker Eddie Nketiah after his impressive performance in Arsenal’s 5-0 victory over Sheffield United. Nketiah scored a hat-trick in the match, showcasing his talent and potential.

Speaking to reporters after the game, Arteta expressed his delight for Nketiah, saying, “I’m so happy for him. He’s always there, he’s always available, willing to improve.” The manager highlighted Nketiah’s dedication to the team and his constant effort to give his best on the pitch.

Nketiah’s first goal came in the 25th minute of the match when he displayed great composure to finish over the keeper. In the second half, he quickly added two more goals within 15 minutes.

Arteta also emphasized the level of trust they have in Nketiah by mentioning that he has started eight Premier League games this season. This indicates the confidence that Arteta and his coaching staff have in the young Englishman.

The victory against Sheffield United propelled Arsenal up to second place in the Premier League table, just two points behind their North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur. This result further solidifies Arsenal’s strong start to the 2023/24 campaign.

Looking ahead, Arsenal will face West Ham United in the Carabao Cup round of 16 at The London Stadium on Saturday. This presents another opportunity for Nketiah and his teammates to continue their positive momentum and compete for silverware.

Meanwhile, Sheffield United remains without a win this season and sits at the bottom of the Premier League table. They will be hoping to turn their fortunes around when they host Wolves in their next league fixture.

In conclusion, Eddie Nketiah’s hat-trick performance against Sheffield United has earned him high praise from manager Mikel Arteta. The young striker’s dedication and improvement have impressed Arteta, who highlighted Nketiah’s consistent availability and willingness to give his best for the team. Arsenal’s convincing victory moves them up into second place in the league standings as they look forward to their upcoming Carabao Cup clash with West Ham United.
