Leeds United fans on Twitter have been reacting to Eddie Nketiah’s goal for the U23 side against Millwall on Monday.
The Arsenal loanee was given a run out for Carlos Corberan’s team, and it didn’t take him long to make an impact.
The attacker has already scored a goal for the senior team, netting on his debut in a Carabao Cup tie against Salford City.
His performance against Salford earned him a number of admirers, but he is still yet to make a senior league appearance for the Yorkshire club.
Several fans were seemingly very impressed by the impact the youngster had off the bench on Monday.
One fan described him as brilliant, while others were in awe of his striking instincts.
Eddie the bagsman at it again

Another supporter said that Patrick Bamford should be taking note of what Nketiah is doing. The striker has often been criticised for missing many chances, and Nketiah is looking like a prolific finisher.
Bamford take note!

Others campaigned for the forward to get a chance in the first-team. Bamford is the current first-choice striker, and with three goals in three games this season it’s hard to argue that he doesn’t deserve a start, but some fans believe Nketiah should be in Bielsa’s lineup.
Start him asap

A separate section of the fanbase weren’t so transfixed by Nketiah’s finish. Instead, they were focused on the pass played by Jack Clarke to set up the move.
Tell you what Clarke looks back to his best #lufc
