Coventry City boss Mark Robins heaped praise on young Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah and even hinted at a possible loan move for the player in January after his performance in the Checkatrade Trophy.

The two sides met at the Ricoh Arena on Wednesday night and the Gunners ran out 3-0 winners.

It was Nketiah himself, who was a second-half substitute, who scored the second goal of the game.

Speaking to Coventry Live after the game, Robins could not help but admire the level of quality that ex-Gunner Freddie Ljungberg has at his disposal.

They had the option to bring on Eddie Nketiah who you can see has outstanding movement and ability, and he’s one that you would not hesitate to take. He’s a really good, talented footballer and a lot them are players who you would say you’d be interested in if they became available.

Nketiah was heavily involved in the Arsenal squad during pre-season but is yet to break through at the Emirates at the tender age of 19.

The England youth international is also yet to get his first taste of first-team football at a senior level, something the Gunners may look to change for the sake of his development sooner rather than later.
