Having previously scored with regularity at U18 level, Edward Nketiah demonstrated on Tuesday that he was also capable of making a sizeable impact on the U23 stage as the forward scored all three of Arsenal’s goals in their comfortable dispatch of Leicester City.

Eddie Nketiah’s first, coming in the 13th minute, was a gorgeous finish reminiscent of the great Thierry Henry.

Nketiah’s second goal was the standout moment of the game as, after a couple of sublime step-overs, the 17-year-old sent a superb driven finish into the back of the net as Arsenal ran out winners.

Nketiah’s third came just two minutes after his second, volleying home a cross at the far post.

He signed from Chelsea as a 14-year-old and Arsenal youngster Eddie Nketiah tonight showed that he’s ready to take the step up into senior football with a superb hat-trick for the U23s.

The 17-year-old forward only signed his first professional contract in September but his performance against Leicester suggests it won’t be his last Arsenal contract.
