Eddie Nketiah reminds me of Ian Wright – Roy Keane

Former Manchester United midfielder, Roy Keane, has likened Eddie Nketiah’s style of play to former Arsenal legend Ian Wright.

Nketiah has been in the limelight since coming into the starting lineup following the injury to Gabriel Jesus at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Continuing his fine form, the English-born Ghanaian scored a brace on Sunday as Arsenal beat Manchester United to go five points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

The 23-year-old hit the equaliser after Marcus Rashford had opened the scoring at the Emirates Stadium before grabbing the winner in the 90th minute of the game to give all three points to Arsenal.

The brace on Sunday means Nketiah now has four league goals in five starts for Arsenal this season.

Reacting to the performance of the youngster, Keane said, “Eddie Nketiah reminds me of Ian Wright. He doesn’t get many touches but he makes them count when it matters,” he said on Sk Sports.

Nketiah has now scored nine goals in 25 appearances across all competitions this season and would look to continue his red hot form in subsequent games.
