Two for Nketiah as impressive Arsenal youngsters thrash Liverpool

Eddie Nketiah scored twice as Arsenal’s development side thrashed Liverpool’s 4-0 on Friday evening.

Bukayo Saka and Joe Willock also scored for the home team in a one-sided Premier League 2 match at Boreham Wood’s Meadow Park ground.

Saka, making his second start at Under-23 level, opened the scoring with a cool finish to round off an incisive counter-attack by the young Gunners.

Nketiah pounced on a defensive mix-up to make it 2-0 soon afterwards and Arsenal continued to dominate after the interval.

Saka set up Willock for the third 11 minutes from the end and, in injury time, Nketiah fired into the bottom corner to complete a resounding win.
