Ghanaian youngster Eddie Nketiah hits BRACE as Arsenal thrash Chelsea in EPL 2

English-born of Ghanaian descent Eddie Nketiah delivered a masterclass on Monday night, scoring twice in Arsenal U23 3-1 win over Chelsea U23 at Stamford Bridge.

Carl Jenkinson also found the back of the net, helping the Gunners to extend unbeaten streak to eight Premier League 2 fixtures.
 
Nketiah opened the scoring for the Arsenal U23 side inside eight minutes.
 
The 19-year-old’s low drive from the edge of the area was all too much for Karlo Ziger.
 
Shortly after Bukayo Saka threatened the Blues defence with a number of darting runs, before Nketiah scored his second, cutting in from the right to find the top corner with a stunning strike.
 
Chelsea then pushed forward in search of a lifeline - and this allowed Jenkinson to make it three on the stroke of half-time, providing the finishing touch to a blistering counter-attack.
 
Following the break, Arthur Okonkwo made fine saves to deny Joseph Colley and Conor Gallagher, but he was eventually beaten in the 83rd minute by Daishawn Redan.
