Eddie Nketiah scored again for Leeds United on Wednesday night, netting the winner just four minutes into his home debut after being brought on as a sub late in the game.
If Eddie Nketiah is doing anything, it’s seizing his chance at Leeds with both feet.
So far, he’s played a total of 91 minutes across two games for Marcelo Bielsa’s side and has scored two goals. If you add in the goal he scored for their u23s, Eddie has scored three in three.
It took him just four minutes to find space to break the deadlock against Brentford on Wednesday evening, a goal that took Leeds to the top of the table after four games (hilariously Stoke are bottom).

“Nketiah is a player who can make a big impact,” Bielsa said after the match. “It says everything when a striker scores with so little time on the pitch. We deserved to win.”
He also spoke about the crowd’s response to Eddie, adding, “When the fans are supporting a player, it can stimulate and have an influence.”
It was also Leeds first home win in five matches.
Nketiah took to Twitter after the game to explain his celebration:

After the game, it was clear to see that Eddie has already won over a large portion of the Leeds fanbase:
