Manager Mikel Arteta shared his views after he gave Nwaneri the nod against Brentford in September. He said :-

“We have the opportunities to bring young players on. We are pretty short and opportunities come when issues arise. It was a pure gut feeling.

“I met the boy, I really liked what I saw. He trained with us a couple of times. I had that feeling yesterday that if the opportunity could come, I would do it. Nwaneri deserves it. He has been doing great. He is such a big talent we want to keep with us.”
