Ethan Nwaneri sends message to Eddie Nketiah on Instagram after Arsenal beat Tottenham

Arsenal youngster Ethan Nwaneri was left amazed by his teammate Eddie Nketiah’s display in the north London derby yesterday. 

Nketiah has been impressive for the Gunners ever since he stepped into the side in the absence of Jesus. 

The 23-year-old had netted four goals in as many games for Mikel Arteta’s men before their 2-0 win over Tottenham yesterday. 

But it was Martin Odegaard who was amongst the goals yesterday after Hugo Lloris’ own-goal gave Arsenal the lead. 

Despite not managing to get on the scoresheet against Spurs, Nketiah put in another eye-catching display as he led the line exceptionally well for the Gunners. And his teammate, Nwaneri, sent him a wordless message on Instagram after the game.

Nwaneri sends message to Nketiah 

Nketiah took to social media to express his delight at Arsenal beating their biggest rivals yesterday. 

“This is our part of London,” he wrote. 

His teammates flocked beneath the post to praise him for yet another promising showing in an Arsenal shirt. 

Emile Smith Rowe left a goat emoji beneath the post, while Nwaneri commented with a heart and two OK hand sign emojis. 

Nketiah is proving that he is more than capable of stepping up in Jesus’ absence as Arsenal’s performances have certainly not dropped off.

There has never been any doubt over Nketiah’s finishing ability but his all-round play has improved dramatically this season. Yesterday’s display showed that he has a lot more to his game than just goals, although he will be frustrated to have not scored after having a couple of chances.

While Nwaneri has not had to be as patient as Nketiah to get his initial opportunity, he can certainly look to teammate for some inspiration. 

The 15-year-old became Arsenal’s youngest ever first-team player earlier in the season and despite the fact he’s yet to feature since, he looks set to have a bright future ahead of him.
