Video: Nicolas Pepe embarrasses himself with unnecessary red card

Arsenal hadn’t been enjoying an easy time of it today against Leeds United, but their task has just gotten harder thanks to Nicolas Pepe‘s red card.

The Ivory Coast international has got himself a straight red card for an off-the-ball incident, where he appears to have headbutt the Leeds man, and VAR has allowed the referee to see what had been missed.

Our had already been second-best for much of the early exchanges, and while the scoreline is still 0-0, we will do well to find a way to secure all three points now this evening.

Will Arteta be looking to punish Pepe in a similar way to Matteo Guendouzi was dealt with last season?

  1. We or so bad we don’t have a clue how to play anymore we be lucky to finish in the top half of the league

  2. Nicolas Pepe is the most S*tpid player in the world. He can’t cover bellerin, no end product, poor body language, very lazy and then the red card. I can’t watch this any more its a sure loss.

  3. Should be end of Pepe’s career at Arsenal. Not lived up to expectations. Arteta should follow him

  4. Besides Pepe being an idiot….let’s not forget how terrible were before going down to 10 men. I hope this isn’t the focus because we looked horrible before

  5. The 2 players who have been clamouring for their chance had it today and blew it. Pepe and Willock. If only partey was available and ceballos played in willocks stead.

    The team looks like they have lost their way.

  6. To be honest, while it was dumb, if the guy had just reacted normally, no one would have said anything. Because the guy fell to the floor and acted injured, everyone is all shocked, calling it a headbutt and Pepe got a red. Only Patrice Evra of all people said anything about the play acting (while Gary Neville was shocked and appalled). Football isn’t what it used to be.
