Ghana target Eddie Nketiah is the first Arsenal Football Club player to score two goals in the first 10 minutes of a Premier League match since Nigeria international Nwanko Kanu.
The Ghanaian forward, Eddie Nketiah became the second ever Arsenal player to score twice in the opening 10 minutes of a Premier League match, after Nwanko Kanu did it against Sunderland in October 2002.
Nketiah scores twice in the English Premier League on Sunday afternoon for Champions League hopefuls Arsenal against Leeds United FC.
The English-born Ghanaian, Nketiah pounced on a loose back pass as he knicked the ball off the goalkeeper’s feet to put the hosts 1-0 up after just five minutes into the game.
Five minutes later, the young striker scored again from close range with a left-footed strike from the center of the box into the middle of the goal to put the hosts 2-0 up in the game.
The visitors got a goal back in the second half despite playing with 10 men for the greater part of the match.
The 22-year-old Ghanaian forward has four goals and one assist this season in the English Premier League.
Arsenal are now four points clear off neighbors and direct competitors Tottenham Hotspur in the top four race.
