It hasn't been the greatest season so far for Arsenal, with very few positives to take so far.

Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez look disinterested, Arsene Wenger appears to have lost it and the Granit Xhaka looks like a dreadful £35m spent.

However, one huge positive is the potential breakthrough of young Eddie Nketiah, with the young striker looking like the next big thing to emerge from the Gunners' academy.

The teenage talent came on in the final stages of Arsenal's Carabao Cup game against Norwich City and completely changed the game.

The Canaries were leading 1-0 until the 85th-minute but Nketiah came on and scored with his first touch.

In extra-time, he powered home a header to seal the victory and passage into the quarter-finals.

Now, Nketiah is looking to make an impact with England's U19 side after receiving the call up for the international break and to say he's taken his chance is an understatement.

NKETIAH ON FIRE FOR THE THREE LIONS

In England's U19 European Championship qualifier versus the Faroe Islands, the Arsenal prospect notched four goals in what was truly a virtuoso display.

All the goals can be seen below courtesy of England's official Twitter account (apologies for the adverts).

FIRST GOAL

NKETIAH'S BRACE

HATTRICK HERO

FOUR-GOAL HERO

Not bad from the youngster.

Surely this season, he's going to get a fair few chances in the Arsenal first-team, particularly as they are already through to the Europa League knockout rounds with two games to spare.

Naturally, Twitter was very impressed with the four-goal man.

TWITTER REACTS

Nkeitiah himself was also tweeting after the game and he was clearly very happy with his performance.

He also took the time to thank former Manchester City starlet Jason Sancho for providing him with a number of assists.

NKETIAH TWEETS

WENGER SAYS HE'LL GET HIS CHANCE

“He will continue to get a chance," said the Gunners boss. "The biggest problem in the Premier League is for the first time since I’m in England we have a consistent level of results in the youth teams.

“That means the quality is there and the next step is to integrate them in the league.”
