After watching Eddie Nketiah bag a third goal in five appearances, Leeds United manager Marco Bielsa has labelled the Arsenal striker a ‘complete player’.
The 20-year-old made another telling contribution off the bench, this time crashing home a late close-range effort to break Barnsley’s stubborn resistance as the Elland Road outfit went top of the Championship with a 2-0 win.
After the match, Bielsa said of his loanee: “Nketiah is a striker who scores goals. Some players get involved a lot in finishing moves, more than creating them. He is a finisher.
“He has good characteristics to combine with his teammates, to play in this side and give more options. He is a complete player.”
Obviously, it’s great to see Eddie thriving. That said, he’s helping Leeds. And everyone hates them. They are very grubby.
Also, we’re starting to wonder whether letting him go for 12 months was a good idea given our heavy over-reliance on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and the now-injured Alex Lacazette.
Especially when we’re going to need to score seven goals just to win a game because we’re absolute doughnuts in defence.
