`For me, Nketiah is a striker of the highest level,` Arteta said after the win at Emirates Stadium.

Yesterday, Nketiah played highest in the Arsenal attack, due to Gabriel Jesus’ injury.

Coach Arteta congratulated Nketiah after the win over Sheffield United on the evening of October 28.

Arteta is pleased that Nketiah has progressed from Arsenal’s training camp to scoring a hat-trick in the Premier League, and expects the English striker to continue to shoot regularly.

`I think Nketiah and Jesus are very different,` Arteta continued.

Another player who grew up from the academy, Bukayo Saka, also had a memorable day when he first took over the captaincy of Arsenal at the age of 22. `Saka deserves it,` Arteta expressed.

The 41-year-old coach was also happy to see the whole team come to celebrate with Tomiyasu Takehiro after the Japanese defender scored his first goal for Arsenal, and also revealed that captain Martin Odegaard was let off due to minor physical problems after playing.

Nketiah and his teammates congratulated Tomiyasu after he scored the 5-0 goal against Sheffield.

Yesterday’s result caused Sheffield to continue to sink deep at the bottom of the table with one point.

Meanwhile, Nketiah considered the win over Sheffield the most memorable day from the beginning of his career and dedicated the hat-trick to his aunt who had just passed away.

On November 1, the `Gunners` played against West Ham in the 1/8 round of the League Cup.
