Arsenal Star Who Proved Today He Can Win The Premier League Golden Boot Next Season

Arsenal continued with their winning streak after they defeated Leeds United at the Emirates today. The Gunners increased their chances of playing in the Champions League next season after going four points clear in the top four.

Mikel Arteta's men took an early lead in the first half through two quick goals from English young striker Edward Nketiah. The 22-year-old scored a brace in five minutes to put his side ahead within the first ten opening minutes.

Nketiah utilized a mistake made by Leeds goalkeeper Illan Meslier in the 5th minute of the match to take the lead. The youngster added the second five minutes later after a terrific team player with Gabriel Martinelli providing the assist.

Arsenal dominated the entire match in both the first half and the second half but they couldn't manage to keep a clean sheet. Diego Llorente pulled a goal back for the lead in the 66th minute but it was not enough to secure the win or force a draw with the west London club.

The Gunners have been high-performing this season and most of their players have been delivering results for the club since the start of the season. However, Edward Nketiah proved he can be the next big player for the club in the next few years.

Since Arteta began playing him more often he has been amazing for the club and he could be one of the best goal scorers in the Premier League. He has not played much this season but Nketiah has scored 9 goals across all competitions. If he gets to play more often next season he can have a chance of winning the golden boot.
