‘Levels’: Declan Rice ‘madly impressed’ by 24-year-old Arsenal team-mate in game against Nottingham Forest

Arsenal midfielder Declan Rice took to Instagram to praise Eddie Nketiah for his goal and performance against Nottingham Forest at the Emirates Stadium in north London in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal prevailed against Nottingham Forest 2-1 at home in the Premier League.

Eddie Nketiah scored the first goal for the Gunners in the 26th minute.

The 24-year-old forward started the game for Arsenal.

Nketiah got his chance due to Gabriel Jesus’ injury.

The Brazil international striker is currently on the sidelines.

And Nketiah seized the opportunity.

Rice was impressed with Nketiah, as you can see from his Instagram post below.

The England midfielder joined Arsenal and Premier League rivals West Ham United from London in the summer transfer window.

Nketiah is a very good striker.

The Arsenal striker is brilliant in and around the box.

Gabriel Jesus is Arsenal’s first-choice forward and if the Brazil international is fully fit he will start.

However, Nketiah showed on Saturday that he is a player Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta can count on.

Arsenal will need the 24-year-old this season.

Nketiah actually plays better and scores when he starts and maybe Arteta should start him more regularly.

Arsenal are aiming to win the Premier League title this season and gain a foothold in the UEFA Champions League.
