Eddie Nketiah spoke to Sky Sports after our 2-1 win over West Ham this evening. The striker scored the winner late on, with an assist from Dani Ceballos.
Here’s what he had to say.
You got the winner, was it your first touch?
Almost, I think it was the second maybe, but obviously it was nice to get on and help the team get the winner.
You and Ceballos were in harmony, after what happened before Fulham.
Obviously there was a coming together, I was a bit upset with the challenge he put in and obviously the reaction was there. But we made up quickly, apologised quickly and got on with it, that’s what happens in life. It was nice for him to make the assist for me today, so it’s all love now!
How much was down to the weight of pass?
It was a great pass, good vision from him, I just tried to stay onside behind the ball and it was an easy finish from there. A great ball from Dani.
All I want to do is keep improving as a player and to come on and get the winner is a great feeling, so I’m delighted with the three points.
Did Arsenal have to dig out a win?
West Ham made it very difficult, second half they came out strong, we had to keep going, had to keep patient, keep passing, and at the end the chances were there and thankfully we put it away.
