Hands up if anyone had heard of Eddie Nketiah before his brace against Norwich on Tuesday night.

Arsenal went into their Carabao Cup fourth round match against Norwich the overwhelming favourites, but after Josh Murphy's 34th-minute goal, it looked as if they were heading to an early exit from this year's competition.

With time whittling down and Arsenal needing an equaliser, Arsene Wenger sent on a youth team player, Eddie Nketiah, in the 85th minute in a desperate attempt to salvage something from the game.

And 15 seconds later, the 18-year-old found himself on the score-sheet with his first touch on his Arsenal debut.

That goal sent the game into extra-time, but Nketiah's dream debut had not finished yet.

The youngster scored again in the 96th minute to give Arsenal a 2-1 lead, and they held on to secure their passage into the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup.

It was a remarkable debut for Nketiah, and Arsenal fans were jubilant that the youngster had guided them to the next round.

And, when a youngster bursts onto the scene in such a manner, football fans are naturally going to get carried away.

In honour of his incredible debut, an Arsenal fan took the opportunity to edit Eddie Nketiah's Wikipedia page.

You can view what was said on Eddie Nketiah's Wikipedia page here:

'Edward Keddar Pele Maradona Ronaldinho Kaka Nketiah'. Absolutely quality. 

His page has since been reverted back to normality, but nevertheless this was still great banter by whomever edited it.

Elsewhere in the Carabao cup, joining Arsenal in the quarter-finals are Bournemouth, Bristol City, Leicester, Manchester United and Manchester City.

The remaining two fourth round fixtures will be played on Wednesday night, where Chelsea will play Everton, and Tottenham will host West Ham.
