Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta has stated that Ghanaian striker Eddie Nketiah is getting better and better as a player of the club.
This statement came in after Arsenal beat Oxford United 3-0 in the third round of the FA Cup.
Nketiah scored two goals on Monday night.
“Obviously he’s been waiting for this moment,” Arteta said of Nketiah following the victory.
“He’s been patient when he needed to be but as well he’s been with the right mindset and preparing himself for this moment.
“That’s why I think he looks ready and why he’s performing the way he is. He showed great composure.
“He’s a great finisher, the timing of his runs and the decision-making in waiting until the last moment when the keeper was committed shows his quality.
“His understanding, his work-rate, I think he’s getting better and better.”
Nketiah is yet to make the switch to the Black Stars.
