“Put some respect on his name” Pundit hails Arsenal man after beating Forest

Eddie Nketiah started this season by sending a message to his doubters after he opened the scoring for Arsenal in their 2-1 win against Nottingham Forest.

The striker was chosen to start the game after Gabriel Jesus was ruled out for several weeks through injury and scored.

Just as was the case last season, Jesus’ injury has seen increased calls for Arsenal to sign a new striker, but the Gunners have decided to trust in Nketiah.

The Englishman is probably the most underrated player at the Emirates and proved again that he is a top professional who can get the job done.

After his superb goal, former striker Darren Bent calls for more respect for Nketiah. He tweeted: “Put some respect on his name @EddieNketiah9” with a clapping emoji.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Nketiah is not a fancy striker like Jesus, which is one reason he is not so highly rated.

However, he has done well for us when he has had to come into the team and we expect that to continue.

If he keeps doing well, he will continue to get chances and we trust our manager’s judgement over the opinion of others.

  1. Eddie Nkettia is confident around the box. It seems the team hardly play to his strength. There were some crosses that were supposed to be whipped lowly across the face of the goal. Instead they were taken up.

    What was that formation about?
    Arteta better not try that against a better team. Why did he stick with some players after 70 minutes even as they were not adding much value to the game. Why not bring in either ESR or Viera in place of Havertz at the closing stages of the game?

    The formation ought to have changed immediately Timber got injured as his replacement does not have the same skill set as him.

    I hope he improves on his judgement

      1. GB @ Newcastle looked absolutely quality tonight ,Howe is a proper manager and you can see why the oil country wanted him when they took over ,made Emery and villa look like relegation folder .
        As for Vamos
        “Newcastle look good “
        Are you a Newcastle fan ?

  2. So, for a mere $65m we get the relatively neat and tidy but slow-footed Havertz.

    Newcastle go for the Italian Tonali and for $5m extra they get an all action top top top class midfielder.

    Still we keep taking the Kool-Aid chanting “Arteta Knows what he is doing”.

  3. Eddie Nketiah was brilliant today, i wonder who will make way if Gabriel or any other CB is introduced for the game cos we surely have to return to our 4231 or 433 formation to match palace’s physicality and trickery especially given the fact we are headed to their home ground.Havertz maybe.

  4. Lack of respect for Nketiah come from our own fans. He has never let Arsenal down and does a job. He isnt as bad as some fans try to make out and is a very good deputy. Maybe not a better player but a better no9 than Jesus.

  5. Nketiah is definitely a goal getter, he will get up to 15 goals this season, if he stays fit and gets to play.
