Eddie Nketiah netted a last-gasp equaliser to rescue a point against Preston North End on Tuesday night.
The Arsenal loanee continues to be a hit for Mareclo Bielsa’s side and it’s left Gunners and Leeds United fans all asking the same question on Tuesday night – why is Eddie not starting for the Championship side?
