Arsenal and Hull fans react on Twitter to Chuba Akpom's brilliant debut

Chuba Akpom

The 19-year-old netted his first professional goal during his Hull City debut in the Championship.

Chuba Akpom got his Hull City career off to a brilliant start on Saturday afternoon as he netted for Steve Bruce's side during a 2-0 win in the Championship.

The Arsenal striker has impressed since his NextGen days and reached the milestone as the Tigers showed they mean business at the start of their league campaign.

Sadly, there isn't quite room for him in Arsenal's first team just yet - although that's a plus considering he isn't quite ready for the Premier League on a regular basis. But, for Hull, the 19-year-old has immediately impressed. And Hull City supporters were delighted with his debut on Twitter. So too were the Gunners faithful.

Should Akpom regularly impress, he may even find his way back to Arsenal later this term - especially if Arsene Wenger's side suffer from their traditional bout of mid-season injuries.

A full campaign at Hull City won't harm the teenager in any way, however, and definitely if he can continue to score goals as the league campaign progresses. Here's how both Hull and Arsenal fans reacted to his performance on Twitter:
