Sports: I haven't been fair to 'humble and hungry' Nketiah - Arteta 



The youngster proved the Gunners' match-winner at Stamford Bridge in a result that galvanised their Champions League dreams

Mikel Arteta has admitted that he hasn't treated Eddie Nketiah fairly after the striker fired two goals in Arsenal's massive win over Chelsea. 

Nketiah scored a goal in either half of Arsenal's 4-2 win, with that win moving the club right back into the race for a top-four spot.

And, after the match, Arteta heaped praise on his young striker, who he says has had to be more patient than expected due to a lack of opportunities. 

“What Eddie has done tonight is because of what he has done for the last 10 months and no-one has noticed," he told the BBC.

"I said to him I haven’t been fair. I should have been playing him more. We have other issues as well and that has not been easy. But he deserved completely what happened to him tonight."

He added to Sky Sports: "When you look at him in training and how humble and hungry he is, good things happen to good people. If I’m happy for anyone it is especially him because I know what he has been through.

"The same with Elneny and Rob Holding. That is why we won the game today. I love the spirit of these players. When you lose matches you get criticised but for these players it is worth it. They are really growing.”
