Unai Emery’s Arsenal kept their impressive pre-season form rolling after youngster Eddie Nketiah gunned Italian outfit Fiorentina down with a sublime brace in the International Champions Cup – leaving many Arsenal fans purring at the striker’s display.

Nketiah bagged the opener in the 15th minute before grabbing his second after first-team stars Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alexandre Lacazette combined to give the starlet an easy opportunity to score, completing his double on the 65th minute. Fellow youth prospect Joe Willock rounded off the scoring as the 3-0 victory made it three wins from three in America for The Gunners.

The 20-year-old also netted the winner against Bayern Munich earlier in the week and it is his performances this off-season which has many Arsenal supporters hoping he will feature more this upcoming season. One fan said he reminded him of Ian Wright, claiming he could reach 20 goals next season whilst another simply used a picture of Pele to show his admiration.

The England Under-21 international enjoyed a glimpse of first-team action last season, playing nine games across the Premier League, FA Cup and Europa League and even scored in Arsenal’s 3-1 final day victory over Burnley. For the youth team in the Premier League 2 last season, the highly-rated striker bagged nine goals in just ten appearances.

Here’s the best of the reaction from a number of Arsenal supporters:
