    "The team’s probably top ten Championship players. We talked about it off air, surely fans are thinking let’s have a go.

    "I’d get in this Sheffield United team. Give me a month’s pre-season and I’m getting in this team."

    Nketiah on his hat-trick

    To do it at Emirates Stadium, in the Premier League, in front of my family and friends is an amazing feeling.

    I can’t tell you how many times I’ve dreamt of this moment – to get three goals in a Premier League [match].

    I’m a childhood supporter of the club, so to do it in front of the fans, my friends, my family and my team-mates is an amazing feeling. It’s a day I’ll remember forever.

    I’ve been practicing a little bit from [long] range in training.

    Emile [Smith Rowe] passed it to me, I had some space, I took a good strike and it went in.

    More on Odegaard

    Arteta also claimed that Martin Odegaard has "endured" a lot over the past few weeks.

    I think he has endured a lot.

    The last couple of weeks have been really good for the team.

    He’s playing every game, as you said, and he had a difficult period with the national team.

    It was a big blow for them with what happened – but this is football.

    He needs to get on with that. He’s a massive player for us.

    Arteta on Odegaard absence

    We went through all the minutes that everybody that has played in the last few weeks.

    He’d played an enormous amount of minutes.

    Martin has been carrying a little thing that wasn’t very comfortable in the games.

    We have players with enormous quality and we have to trust them.
    We believe it was the right day to do so.

    Arteta wishes Blades the best

    Mikel Arteta has given credit to Sheffield United for their efforts in the Premier League so far.

    In my personal opinion, this is the best and most competitive league in the world.

    It is really difficult for us, so I can imagine for a team that is coming from the Championship, how difficult it is.

    But big credit to Sheffield United.

    I watched all the games that they played against the big teams and how many problems they have created for them, and the small margins of how they have lost the games. So I wish them the best.

    He’s started nine out of our ten Premier League games, so that tells you how much we trust him and the importance he has in the team.

    I’m really happy for him, an academy player to experience a Premier League hat-trick.

    He needs to enjoy the moment, he fully deserves it, and hopefully there are many more to come.

    Gunners want Guehi

    Arsenal are in the chase for Crystal Palace’s England defender Marc Guehi — but the bidding war will not start until the summer.

    The Gunners are huge admirers of Guehi but know the centre-back, who cost £18million, is not on the market for the time being.

    That suits boss Mikel Arteta, who has a settled back line but sees Guehi as part of his long-term plans and is both willing and happy to wait, with the auction likely to be at the end of the season.

    Palace will demand a huge fee for the 23-year-old, who has also been linked with Manchester City, Manchester United — and even a return to Chelsea, where he came through the academy.

    Pundit lauds hat-trick hero Nketiah

    Tim Sherwood has lauded Arsenal’s hat-trick hero Eddie Nketiah, who he feels could easily play for Manchester United because he is an ‘upgrade’ on Rasmus Hojlund.

    He said on Sky Sports' Soccer Saturday: "‘I feel sorry for Eddie Nketiah, because people [in general] and Arsenal fans, no matter who it is, they are always asking questions about him and looking what he can’t do.

    "I like to look at what he can do. He can play in a lot of teams. A lot of big teams. You’re telling me this boy couldn’t play for Man United at the moment instead of Rasmus Hojlund?

    "He’s an upgrade on Rasmus Hojlund. [United] spent an awful lot of money on him.

    "For me, Eddie Nketiah is top draw. I think he warrants playing for Arsenal at the top of the Premier League."
