Video: Nicolas Pepe gets his first goal of pre-season on course to victory

Nicolas Pepe joined the party today as he put Arsenal 3-0 up against Millwall, before going onto a 4-1 victory.

The Ivory Coast international had missed a penalty against Hibernian in our opening friendly match in Scotland, but will be glad to be able to put that behind him with a goal in today’s win.

He put himself perfectly placed in the box to receive the ball to place his effort beyond the scattering goalkeeper, and Pepe’s fine effort will hopefully be an incite into his preparation for the new campaign, with around three weeks until the Premier League campaign returns to action.

The team put in an assured performance, but they still have a long way to go to being ready for the return to action against Brentford personally, although there is no need to be worried about such a thing at this point in pre-season.

    Pepe looked REALLY sharp from the moment he came on. I reckon he’s going to have a truly memorable season.

    Loved Lokonga
    His team up with Partey was superb
    Won’t be surprised if Arteta start him on day 1

    Didn’t see the game but Lokonga and Pepe sound like they had a good game. Did ESR play in a number 10 role? If so how did he do?
