'Definition of tap in merchant': Some Arsenal fans react after 'best stat of the year' concerning Eddie Nketiah
Some Arsenal fans were reacting after a stat about Eddie Nketiah emerged.
According to a statistician, Patrick Schick’s strike yesterday was scored from a longer distance than all of the ace’s Premier League goals combined.
Nketiah is known for his notorious finishing, however, he is more of a fox-in-the-box striker.
There have been reports over the 21-year-old’s future at the Emirates Stadium. The Athletic have claimed that the figure is in talks over a contract extension with the club.
However, it is thought to be a move by the north London giants to protect the player’s value. His current deal is due to expire in 2022.
TBR View: Arsenal forward Nketiah plays within the 18-yard box amid staggering statistic
The stat about Nketiah may leave those associated with Arsenal quite surprised. However, the England under-21 international has always been a box player.
It’s inside the 18-yard box where Nketiah comes alive and does his best work.
His strike at the start of last season against West Ham is one example of how well he does in the final third.
However, the stat also displays the need for the forward to work on other aspects of his game, like his effectiveness outside the box.
Here is how fans reacted…
