Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Arsenal-owned striker Eddie Nketiah against West Bromwich Albion.
Nketiah, signed on loan from Premier League club Arsenal in the summer transfer window, started for Leeds in their Championship game against West Brom away from home at The Hawthorns on Wednesday.
The 20-year-old striker started the match, but Leeds head coach Marcelo Bielsa decided not to bring him on for the second half.
According to WhoScored, the England Under-21 international did not take a single shot, had a pass accuracy of 75%, won one header, took 14 touches, and made one clearance.
The youngster is a very talented and promising striker, but he has struggled for playing time at Leeds so far this season.
With the January transfer window now open, Arsenal could decide to recall the England Under-21 international striker from his loan spell at Leeds and send him out on loan to another club.

That half is the reason Eddie Nketiah hasn't been starting. Nowhere near ready. if Arsenal recall him they're making a big mistake. #lufc #afc— Rob (@ThingsISayAndDo) January 1, 2020
Nketiah not good enough.— KSJ (@Kylejohnson89) January 1, 2020
Regardless of what some Leeds fans think and most of the deluded arsenal fan base he’s just no where near it.
Been a shadow behind Bamford all season and rightly so. #LUFC
Eddie Nketiah experiment over, impact sub or he's off i reckon. Probably wont accept that role so should go to a counter attacking side that play to his strengths #lufc— Alex (@Bazzbawls) January 1, 2020
I think we need to move on from the Nketiah circus and send him back. He is not as good as Bamford and we need better!— LUFC_in_London (@Tokyo_LUFC) January 1, 2020
And that folks is why the club is fine with Nketiah going back to Arsenal, Bamford just offers more all round #lufc— Tom (@_The_BigT) January 1, 2020
Paddy Bamford >>>>>>> Eddie Nketiah— Glos' White (@GlosWhite) January 1, 2020
I don't care how good a prospect Eddie might be#LUFC
Bamford brings so much more to this team than Nketiah #lufc— Pearce Gaffney (@Pearce_Gaffney) January 1, 2020
For all those slating Nketiah… He’s a great striker, will fire in the goals easily for whoever he goes to, but he needs a striker up alongside him to do the physical work, that’s obvious. Could have worked as 2 up top with Bamford imo. Good luck in the future Eddie #lufc— James Courtney (@jcourts1991) January 1, 2020
I think Eddie Nketiah has a huge future ahead of him!! Natural goal scorer!! What I don’t get is why him and Arsenal think he has a god given right to walk into any football team! If he wants to go back…. let him! #lufc #mot— Josh Reynolds (@JoshReynolds27) January 1, 2020
Bamford’s movement has been SO much better than Nketiah’s. #lufc— Ben (@Ben_Paul) January 1, 2020
