Eddie Nketiah joined Arsenal after being released from Chelsea’s academy setup at the age of 14. The 17-year-old signed his first professional contract with the Gunners earlier in the summer and has been highly regarded as a top talent at the club.
And, Nketiah further proved his credentials as he took the pitch for Arsenal’s Under 23 side to face Leicester City’s Under 23 in the Premier League 2.
The 17-year-old scored a hattrick for the Gunners as his three goals helped Arsenal to a 3-0 win over the Foxes.
The highlight of the hattrick was his second goal, where the player initiated a wonderful run from the halfway line and capped it off with a wonderful finish in the bottom corner from just outside the box.
