Video: Arteta reiterates Nicolas Pepe’s improvements throughout the campaign

Nicolas Pepe has fought hard to earn back a regular starting role in the first-team at Arsenal this season, and the manager couldn’t deny his improvement.

The Ivory Coast international was signed for a club-record fee in the summer of 2019, but has taken time to settle into his new club.

There are very few who now doubt the forward’s importance within our first-team, and his two goals yesterday have only moved to highlight his ability.

Could Pepe be an outside shot for Arsenal’s Player of the Year Award?

    I was one of his biggest critics, but I have to admit the lad did step up to the mark this season when arteta did play him,

    All we need is consistency in at least 3/4 of the season which can be of great importance to the team.

    Let’s not get too carried away with the Pepe praise…take away the last two matches, he had 6 goals in his previous 27 League appearances…he has definitely showed flashes this season, but he needs to be a much more consistent contributor moving forward…I still would like to see him more centrally at times, tucked in behind a striker, or in a 3-5-2 tandem up top, as he has some shooting skills in both feet…unfortunately our current tactics have left him in wider positions facing double-teams far too often, which usually results in a loss of possession
