Arsenal striker Nketiah: I learned a lot from demanding Bielsa

Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah says there were positives to draw from a tough loan at Leeds United.

The striker, who scored in yesterday's win over Everton, says despite a lack of minutes his time under Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa has helped him a lot.

"My Leeds experience was good for me, I learned as a player," Nketiah said.

“It started really well, obviously I came on and if you check my minutes-to-goal ratio it's quite good, but obviously it's just how things are.

“It was a very good environment to be in, he (Bielsa) is a very demanding coach and I learned a lot.

“You have to learn about yourself and take each opportunity as it comes. I'm here playing at Arsenal, which is a dream."
