4 Goals From 9 Shots on Target, The Future of Arsenal Young Star

Two first-half goals from a youthful Arsenal team  secured a first away victory for Mikel Arteta since he succeeded Unai Emery and set up another trip to the south coast to play Portsmouth in the fifth round.

Bukayo Saka scored the Gunners’ opening goal striking the ball in from a tight angle after just five minutes, while Eddie Nketiah doubled their lead after he fired home Saka’s cross from the left flank.

From Arsenal’s victory in the fifth round of the Emirates FA cup, one young star is worth mentioning.

Eddie Nketiah is fast establishing a reputation for himself as one of Arsenal’s reliable strikers.

The game against Bournemouth was Nketiah's first under manager Mikel Arteta since his recall from loan at Leeds United at the beginning of January.

But his stat of four goals from nine shots on target for the Gunners, a stat stressing his goal scoring instinct tells alot of his talent.
Nketiah is known for his pace and finishing ability, his style has been compared to former Arsenal striker Ian Wright.

Arsenal head to Turf Moor to take on a Burnley side who sit level with them on 30 points and Nketiah will be hoping for a Premier League appearance where he will also want to make his mark.

Nketiah said: "Yeah it's nice to be back. I had a great experience out at Leeds, I learnt a lot."The boss was really happy with me in what he saw. Obviously you want to play for Arsenal it's my dream to play for Arsenal, so I'm grateful for this opportunity."I'm just happy to be back and get back out there."

He added, "It's nice to be through to the next round," Nketiah added. "We're going to prepare and recover well, we've got games in between so we're going to focus on that and hopefully keep building on the momentum."
