Eddie Nketiah, a striker at Emirates Stadium, has pledged to work hard for his chance in the Premier League. In fact, Nketiah vows to earn a Premier League spot at Arsenal, though it may come after immense toil.

On Tuesday, 22-year-old striker Eddie Nketiah scored Arsenal’s second goal in a 2-0 EFL Cup fourth-round win over Leeds United. This strike brought his brilliant total to seven goals in eight outings in the competition.

However, despite scoring in Arsenal’s EFL Cup triumph over Leeds and before that, against AFC Wimbledon, Nketiah is, in most cases, not included in the predicted line-ups for any of Arsenal’s Premier League football fixtures.

Nketiah, who had three shots in the game against Leeds, two of which were on target, hasn’t debuted in EPL. He is yet to play in the English Premier League for the Gunners this season.

But instead of moping about it, Nketiah is eager to strongly make his case to Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta.

Eddie Nketiah will keep working hard at Arsenal in order to force his way into Mikel Arteta’s Premier League plans.

“It is always nice to play, it’s obviously been a while,” he told Sky Sports.

“I’ve been working hard, waiting for this opportunity. I was confident and ready and it’s always nice to score and help your team.

“We’re on a good run at the moment and it’s about continuing to work hard. We push each other every day in training and the results come in the match.

“I’m happy for the boys and it’s nice to get involved and contribute.”

Arsenal’s fine form, of late, has seen them go eight games without losing in all competitions.

And Nketiah believes all of Arsenal’s fringe players should seize opportunities whenever they arise, especially during the club’s recent resurgence.

“That’s what we’re trying to do,” Nketiah said.

“The manager picks the starting line-up but we have to work our hardest in training, and when we get the opportunities, we perform like we did today. I think everyone should be proud of themselves.”
