Eddie Nketiah is making a huge impression during his time on loan at Leeds. After scoring on his debut for the Yorkshire club, he bagged his second after coming as a substitute against Brentford last night.
The 20-year-old only played the last 15 minutes but he made a massive impact on the match, grabbing the winner in the 81st minute to clinch a 1-0 win to put Leeds top of the Championship table.
Nketiah’s start to his loan spell with the Whites has been praised by Arsenal fans on Twitter:

Whether manager Marcelo Bielsa will look to start him more often, it remains to be seen. His current first choice Patrick Bamford has scored three in his first four league matches so there is fierce competition for the number nine role.
Even so, if Nketiah continues to put in such good substitute performances, the Leeds boss will have no choice but to start him in the near future.
