Video: MotM Nicolas Pepe sends out a message to the fans

Nicolas Pepe continued his fine form of late with both goals in the 2-0 victory over Brighton today, and wanted to thank the Arsenal fans for the support.

This was the Gunners first match of the season in front of the Emirates crowd, and you could feel that things were different having the fans there for support.

While Pepe thanked the fans, Arsenal’s official Twitter account posted his second goal, highlighting the noise from the crowd as something that has been missing.

We certainly can’t wait to get back to ‘normal’ as things continue to return, and we should (fingers crossed) be able to expect full stadiums for the new campaign.

    Pepe has been involved in 21 goals for Arsenal this season, more than any other Arsenal player. Key player, perhaps Arteta should have had a bit more faith earlier.

      How does a player build teamwork or confidence if he is in and out of the team?
      Fair play to Pepe for his goal scoring achievements this season, when given his opportunities. He has won Arsenal quite a number of games.

  2. ozziegunner says:

    Nicholas Pepe, despite being in and out of a comparatively poor team, has better statistics than Robert Pires and Freddie Ljundberg in their first to seasons at Arsenal.
    Please Arteta show Pepe some love next season and play him continuously, when he is on a run of form and scoring goals.

    Is quite interesting seeing pepe lately with credible performance. Hope he will pick up from where he stopped at just concluded season.

    Without ever knowing you could ask yourself with the way Arteta has managed Pepe, he may have never reached this level.

    Always in the team no matter what, could have coasted but Arteta challenged him to improve “even said in interviews” and now that’s what is happening. Arteta’s man management has been questionable but maybe this one has worked out in the end.

    We want competition to get in the team so you can’t have it both ways, starters no matter what or. Players fighting for a first team place, I know which one O would prefer.

    If Arteta can keep pushing the core of the team for the future Saka, ESR, Willock, Pepe, Saliba, Martinelli, Gabi, Leno the future looks bright

    I agree with both Reggie& Ozzie also this goal perfectly shows MO influence this is not the first time or assist where Pépé wants the ball to his feet but MO forces him with his forward pass to get into the right space/position
