Arsenal wonderkid Nketiah reacts to his first Leeds United goal

Eddie Nketiah scored for Leeds United in his debut following a loan move from Arsenal to Championship side on the transfer deadline day last week. 

After missing out in the first game against Nottingham Forest over the weekend, boss Marcelo Bielsa handed him a debut in the Carabao Cup clash against Salford City on Tuesday and netted the opener in the first half for Leeds. And now the 20-year-old is eager for more goals and starts.

"It’s nice to get the win most importantly and to get through to the next round, this competition is a great competition and we are going to take it seriously and work hard," he told LUTV.

"To get a goal on my debut is also nice and good for my confidence, hopefully, I can build on this performance and have better performances.”

"It was a good time to score just before half time, giving us a bit of confidence going into the break and the game opened up a lot in the second half.”

"I’ve been itching to play, I want to score in every game, that is my aim, but I know that’s not going to happen in every match, I just try to focus on playing well and working hard for the team first and I feel if I do that, the chances will come if I am in the right positions. We took our chances well, 3-0 is a good result away from home and I feel it was a good performance from the team overall."
