Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah has opened up about the special person he dedicated his hat-trick to after their 5-0 victory over Sheffield United. Nketiah, who played a crucial role in securing the win for his team, revealed that he lost his auntie last month and wanted to honor her memory with his outstanding performance.

“It’s amazing. It’s not been easy – last month I lost my auntie, so I want to dedicate these three goals to her,” Nketiah told reporters. “Her family was here watching, so it is a really special moment.”

Nketiah’s hat-trick helped Arsenal cruise to a comfortable victory over Sheffield United. Although the visitors initially frustrated the Gunners for the first 25 minutes of the game, Nketiah broke the deadlock with a smart finish over the keeper to score his first goal. He then quickly added two more goals within 15 minutes of the second half starting.

The young striker capitalized on Foderingham’s poor clearance to rifle in his second goal before sealing his hat-trick with a wonderful strike from the edge of the box. Nketiah’s exceptional performance was complemented by Vieira, who won a late penalty and converted it calmly, and Tomiyasu, who scored in stoppage time following a corner.

With this victory, Arsenal climbed up to second place in the Premier League table, now just two points behind their rivals Spurs. Their next challenge will be an EFL Cup match against West Ham United at The London Stadium.

On the other hand, Sheffield United continues to struggle as they remain without a win this season and sit at the bottom of the Premier League standings. They will be hoping for better fortunes when they face Wolves in their upcoming fixture.

Arsenal’s current position on the Premier League table reflects their strong performance in this 2023/24 campaign. With 24 points under their belt, they are determined to maintain their momentum and challenge for top honors.

As Nketiah dedicates his hat-trick to his late auntie, it serves as a reminder that footballers are not just athletes but individuals with personal stories and emotions that drive them both on and off the pitch.
