English journalist Charles Watts is an Arsenal correspondent for popular media outlet Goal and he made a NicklasBendtner comparison while he was talking about Calum Chambers on his YouTube channel last week.
Watts referenced Danish striker NicklasBendtner when he was speaking about Chambers who scored for Arsenal shortly after coming on as a substitute. England international scored after an Arsenal corner kick caused a big problem for the Leeds United during the Carabao Cup round of 16 clash between the two teams at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night and 26-year-old Chambers was on hand to score and break the deadlock for the Gunners.

Chambers had come on for the injured Ben White in the Arsenal defence in the second half and it took him just 23 seconds to fire his team into the lead at the expense of Leeds United.

NicklasBendtner had done the same in the North London Derby in the Premier League in 2007 at the same end of the pitch at the Emirates Stadium. The Danish player headed a well taken Cesc Fabregas corner kick into the back of the net 1.8 seconds after coming on and his goal was enough to give Arsenal a 2-1 win at home to Tottenham Hotspur.
For the Carabao Cup last 16 encounter with the Whites, Chambers set the Gunners on the way to a 2-0 win over their guests with his goal. Ex-Leeds United striker Eddie Nketiah scored the second goal of the game for Arsenal on 69 minutes as he pounced on the mistake in the Leeds United defence.
Nketiah spent some time at Leeds United on loan two seasons back. He joined the Whites on loan for the 2019/20 season and he returned to Arsenal midway into the loan deal at Leeds United. Nketiah pounced on an error from Leeds United skipper Liam Cooper to double the Gunners lead and take his team to the Carabao Cup quarterfinals where they will face League One club Sunderland at home.
