Arsenal boss, Mikel Arteta, has singled out striker, Eddie Nketiah for praise following his impressive display for the Gunners in their 2-1 victory against West Ham United in the Premier League on Saturday.

Arteta said Nketiah did a good job against West Ham, adding that the youngster was massively important for Arsenal during the encounter.

Arsenal defeated West Ham at Emirates Stadium, thanks to two goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah as Michail Antonio’s strike was not enough to give the visitors a point.

Speaking on Nketiah’s performance, Arteta was quoted by Arsenal’s official website as saying after the game: “It is so important for him and for the team as well. It is a clear message for everybody on the bench that they have a clear mission when they come on.

“Whether it’s one minute or 45 minutes, they come on to help the team, and today Eddie was massively important. He did his job really well.”

He added: “We created some really good movements in some phases of the game, but we were not consistent enough and I still think that iswhere we have a long way to go.”

Arsenal’s next Premier League match is against holders, Liverpool on September 28.
