Arsenal loanee Eddie Nketiah will reportedly not be able to play against his parent club for Leeds United in the FA Cup in January, which has led many Whites fans to make an ominous prediction.
The draw for the Third Round, the earliest stage that includes Premier League or Championship sides, took place last night and revealed that Leeds will travel to the Emirates to face the Gunners in early January.
The Yorkshire Evening Post’s Graham Smyth has reported that Nketiah will be unable to play in that game for the Whites.

The 20-year-old arrived at Elland Road on a season-long loan in the summer and is Marcelo Bielsa’s side’s second-highest scorer, despite not starting in the Championship once and missing a month due to injury.
Nketiah’s lack of game time has left question marks over whether or not Arsenal will look to cut the loan short in January, with the Championship club reportedly expecting him to be recalled.
On the back of the announcement that he will be unable to feature in the game for Leeds, many fans of the club have made an ominous prediction, suggesting that the striker may be recalled and play for the Gunners.
