Eddie Nketiah at Leeds: Young Arsenal striker hoping to thrive under pressure of playing at Elland Road

Scroll below to watch Arsenal loanee Eddie Nketiah's debut goal for Leeds

Arsenal youngster Eddie Nketiah believes he can thrive on the pressure and expectation of playing for Leeds after scoring on his debut for the Sky Bet Championship promotion favourites.

The Arsenal striker, who joined Leeds on a season-long loan last week, scored 43 minutes into his debut as the Yorkshire side won 3-0 at Salford in the Carabao Cup.

Gaetano Berardi and Mateusz Klich were also on target in the second half as Leeds finally wore down the impressive League Two newcomers at the Peninsula Stadium, but it was Nketiah who took the plaudits.

"It is nice for my confidence," said Nketiah. "It was good for me but the more important thing was the team getting the win.

"It was nice to get out there and get into a rhythm and I am sure there will be more to come.

"I know the history and tradition of the club. I'm coming from Arsenal, so I'm used to being at a big club, but that bit of pressure and expectation, hopefully I can thrive off it and I can continue to do well, work hard and help the team as best as I can."

Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa felt his side were not at their best.

He said: "We had a normal performance. You can't say we played bad but we didn't play well. We increased the tempo in the second half and then we improved.

"We could have scored from more situations but at the same time we received (conceded) more chances than we wanted to receive."
