Arsenal fans react to performance of Nicolas Pepe in Leicester win

Arsenal beat Leicester 3-1 at the King Power Stadium earlier today and afterwards Nicolas Pepe was the name of the lips of supporters.

The Ivorian completed the win for the Gunners with a goal on 52 minutes, after David Luiz and Alexandre Lacazette had given Arsenal a half-time lead.

Pepe has struggled to live up to his £72 million price tag but he’ll soon win over his critics with a few more performances of this nature.

The 25-year-old has now scored eight times during 2020/21 in all competitions and is slowly but surely getting to grips with English football.

Arsenal remain in tenth place in the Premier League but there are signs of vast improvements under Mikel Arteta.

The club are facing a big couple of weeks with Burnley, Tottenham, West Ham and Liverpool to come in the Premier League.

Arsenal also have a chance at retribution over Olympiacos who they have drawn in the last 16 of the Europa League.

Today was all about Pepe though and after the game supporters took to Twitter to rave about the £100,000-a-week flyer.

Here is what the Gunners fan base were saying about the speedy winger.
