'Hat-trick pending': Arsenal fans react to Gjanni Alioski's comments on Nicolas Pepe
Arsenal fans have been having their say on Twitter today after Patrick Bamford admitted Gjanni Alioski was looking forward to meeting Nicolas Pepe this weekend.
The pair were involved in an altercation at Elland Road earlier in the campaign. Pepe saw red that day as he lost his cool, although the game did finish 0-0 in the end.
This weekend represents a chance for both sides to go all out for three points. Leeds are looking to build on their recent good form, while Arsenal are looking to get out of a mini rut and pick up what would be a huge three points.
Pepe is once again likely to play, although he has been playing on the left lately, meaning it could be Alioski has to content with Bukayo Saka this time around. Of course, that could be a problem for the Leeds man.
Arsenal fans, though, think Pepe could be about to come out fighting and they took to Twitter to back their man today.
Pepe hattrick pending…
