Some Arsenal fans fume as Eddie Nketiah plays for Leeds' U23s

General views of Elland Road before the Sky Bet Championship match between Leeds United and Aston Villa at Elland Road on December 03, 2016 in Leeds, England.

Some Arsenal fans have expressed their unhappiness after Eddie Nketiah turned out for Leeds United's Under-23s.

Nketiah moved to Leeds on a season-long loan deal in the final throes of the summer transfer window for Premier League and Championship clubs.


The young Arsenal striker made his debut the following Tuesday, scoring in the Whites' League Cup success against Salford City, but has yet to appear for his temporary employers at Championship level.

And in a move not atypical of the Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa, Nketiah was dropped to the U23s to play Millwall on Monday.

Nketiah, who scored in a 3-2 win at the Whites' Thorp Arch training ground, was joined in Carlos Corberan's 16-man squad by several high-profile colleagues, including his fellow summer signings Helder Costa, Jack Clarke and Illan Meslier.

And this is what is being said by those of an Arsenal persuasion on Twitter...







Nketiah is one of two recognised senior strikers at Leeds, and will surely get his chance over the course of the campaign.

His positional rival, Patrick Bamford, scored both goals as the Whites won 2-0 at Wigan on Saturday.

Are Arsenal fans overreacting over Nketiah?
