Eddie Nketiah commended Arsenal for producing a “mature” performance in Monday’s 2-0 FA Cup win against Portsmouth.
The Gunners went into this encounter on the back of their Europa League exit to Olympiacos, however, they earned a quarter-final berth at the expense of the League One team.
Sokratis Papastathopoulos put Mikel Arteta’s men ahead in the first half before Nketiah doubled the lead in the 51st minute thanks to Reiss Nelson’s cross.
The youngster – who now boasts of three goals in his last four starts for the Gunners, was quick to laud the performance of his youthful side, while expressing his delight with his strike.
“Mature performance from the team to book a place in the quarter-finals. Happy to get another goal for Arsenal . God is good!” Nketiah tweeted.
Having qualified for the competition’s quarter-finals, Arsenal will welcome West Ham United to the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
There, they would hope secure maximum points in their quest to end the Premier League campaign well after a stuttering start to the season
