Mikel Arteta Identifies ‘Great Finisher’ In Arsenal Squad

Arsenal boss, Mikel Arteta has identified striker, Eddie Nketiah, as a ‘great finisher.’

Arteta said this following Arsenal’s FA Cup third-round 3-0 win over Oxford United on Monday night.

Recall that Arsenal defeated Oxford United at the Kassam Stadium following a goal from Mohamed Elneny and a brace from Eddie Nketiah.

Speaking during his post-match press conference after the game, Arteta said he was happy with Nketiah.

“He showed great composure. He is a great finisher and the timing of his runs as well,” Arteta said.


“The decision making to wait until the last moment shows his quality. It is not only that – his understanding, his work rate, I think, is getting better and better.

“And I am really happy with him.”

Arsenal will now face Manchester City in the FA Cup fourth-round tie on January 28.
