CHECK THIS OUT: Eddie Nketiah is to be replaced and Arteta is urged to speed up the process.

Following Eddie Nketiah’s declaration that “we need more goals,” Mikel Arteta is urged to replace him.

Although Eddie Nketiah has performed well enough for Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal this season to earn a spot in Gareth Southgate’s England squad, it seems that not everyone is convinced.

For the Gunners’ upcoming Premier League match, manager Mikel Arteta of Arsenal has been instructed to start Gabriel Jesus rather than the in-form Eddie Nketiah.

Next up for Arsenal is a challenging trip to Everton the following Sunday, where Arteta’s team will be looking to keep their unbeaten start to the season going.

So far, there have been four league games played, with Nketiah starting three of them and scoring two goals. Jesus, in contrast, has yet to make a start, but he has already scored one goal after a skillfully executed finish against Manchester United.

However, former Arsenal player Kevin Campbell, who is well-versed in leading the line for the Gunners, doesn’t seem to have been persuaded by Nketiah’s impressive performance in front of goal.

Nketiah has received his first senior call-up to the England national team.

Jesus has had his injury, he’s come back and he’s made a difference, Campbell said in an interview with The Gooners Podcast. Gabriel Jesus, if healthy, should start for us against Everton because he makes such a significant contribution at the top of the field.”.

Although Campbell encouraged Jesus to start at Goodison Park, he did acknowledge that Arsenal needed Jesus and a few other prominent players to score more often.

“We need 20 goals from Gabriel Jesus this season,” the former Gunners star continued, “and we need more goals from him. We also need Martin Odegaard, [Gabriel] Martinelli, [Bukayo] Saka, and Kai Havertz to reach some form and the heights, as well as [Bukayo] Saka, [Gabriel] Martinelli, and Martin Odegaard.”.

Jesus scored 11 league goals last season, which at first glance may not seem impressive for a player who cost Arteta’s team £45 million last summer.

It is crucial to remember that the former Manchester City player had knee surgery at the end of last year while competing in the World Cup, which caused him to miss a significant portion of the season.

Nketiah did a more than adequate job filling in for the Brazilian international during that time.

But as soon as Jesus was fully fit again, he started again as Arsenal’s star player.

This season, if Campbell has his way, it might be a similar tale, with the Gunners academy graduate likely to be benched once more.

Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah are competing to be Arsenal’s main man.

In the Premier League, there isn’t much room for sentiment, so Arteta has proven himself more than willing to make debatable selections if he believes Jesus is better suited to handle the challenge Everton’s defenders present.

In light of this, Nketiah recently spoke to the media at St. George’s Park: “Gabriel [Jesus] is a fantastic player and a great guy off the field, so we get along really well, and it’s nice to be competing with him.

For both myself and him, it will only be beneficial.

The team’s needs are something we both want to fulfill.

During training, we push one another.

This rivalry is constructive and cordial.”.
