Arsenal youngster Eddie Nketiah scored just 43 minutes into his Leeds United debut.

The Championship side cruised into the second round of the Carabao Cup with a simple 3-0 win away to Salford City.

Nketiah, who has just commenced a season-long-loan for the Whites was handed his debut by Marcelo Bielsa on Tuesday night.

The Gunners loanee justified his inclusion by scoring the opener.

Arsenal icon Ian Wright couldn’t hide his delight with the 20-year-old’s goal.

Salford were making their debut in the competition after four promotions in five seasons, but the Yorkshire club proved too much to ask for the club co-owned by six of his famous Class of ’92 – including David Beckham and Ryan Giggs.

Nketiah won’t score many easier goals for Leeds this season, tapping home from six yards after a brilliant low cross from Helder Costa on his full debut.

The striker and Arsenal fans alike will be hoping that his opening goal is the first of many this season.
