Eddie Nketiah's is a mentality monster, Arsenal 'All or Nothing' clip proves it

Eddie Nketiah's is a mentality monster, Arsenal 'All or Nothing' clip proves it

Eddie Nketiah has led the line with distinction for Arsenal and scored twice in the 3-2 win over Manchester United.

It's no surprise to see Eddie Nketiah starring for Arsenal after seeing his elite mentality on show in the 'All or Nothing' Amazon Prime documentary.

Nketiah was handed the No.14 shirt worn by Thierry Henry in the summer when he signed a new five-year contract worth £100,000-a-week.

His role looked to be playing back-up to £45 million new signing Gabriel Jesus and his first eleven Premier League appearances of the season came as a substitute.

But an injury to the Brazilian gave Nketiah a chance to lead the line for the Premier League leaders and he scored on his first start against West Ham on 26 December.

And the England Under 21 international enhanced his reputation further with a brilliant brace, including the winner, as Arsenal beat Manchester United 3-2.

Nketiah had to be patient but applied himself perfectly. And fans harked back to a documentary clip where he scolded teammate Albert Sambi Lokonga for "feeling sorry" for himself over a lack of game-time.

Chatting over breakfast, the midfielder was asked about changing his demeanor and not being so "smiley and "happy".

He explained that his mood was like that because he was "playing".

Nketiah, who had an unfruitful loan spell with Leeds in the Championship, took issue with Lokonga's comments.

He replied: “So what my friend? You think you're the only man not f***ing playing my friend?

“Stop feeling sorry for yourself and "f***ing wake up man."

And having seen him perform with distinction of late, Arsenal fans have been lapping up the exchange once again.

One supporter said: "The genesis of his renaissance. An example of why he has stepped into the shoes of Jesus seamlessly.

It’s a testament to his character and the dressing room that Arteta has built."

A second wrote: "Top notch mentality this, fair play man."

Another commented: "He earned my forever respect when I watched this. Goes to what Scholes was saying. This mentality will always make you a Winner! Class, Nketiah Class!

A fourth added: "Mentality monster."

Nketiah has nine goals in all competitions and will be looking to get to double figures on Friday against Manchester City in a huge FA Cup clash.
