Darren Bent has stated he “puts respect on his name” after reacting to Eddie Nketiah opening his Premier League account with a goal for Arsenal in 2023/24.
Mikel Arteta’s side defeated Nottingham Forest 2-1 at the Emirates on Saturday when Eddie Nketiah used a beautiful ability from Gabriel Martinelli to open the scoring from inside the box.
That led to former Tottenham player Bent, who was an Arsenal fan growing up, applauding the Hale End star Twitter.
Nketiah has been under a lot of pressure since last season and does not appear to be up to the standard of a side keen to win the Premier League title.
The £100,000-a-week star (Spotrac) Last season he stood in for Gabriel Jesus when he was injured after the World Cup.
And once again he does the same and hopes for better results, with Bent giving his support, his comment was even liked by Nketiah himself.
“Show some respect to his name @EddieNketiah9,” Bent wrote, adding clapping emojis.
Big season for Nketiah
Even if Gabriel Martinelli, Martin Odegaard and Bukayo Saka scored in double figures in the Premier League last season.
Many are demanding Arsenal buy this ’20-goal striker’ from the summer transfer market.
While there is Nketiah, who is a typical poacher, he will clearly feel that people doubt his skills. Since Jesus is hurt, this is His chance to prove these doubters wrong.
