Arsenal’s record new signing Nicolas Pepe finally got off the mark for the Gunners after he converted a penalty kick this afternoon against Aston Villa.
There had been some murmurings about the lack of goals from the 24-year-old but he has put an end to that now and it does not really matter how they are scored, they all count and he can kick on now that he has the first goal under his belt.
The normal Arsenal penalty taker is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang but on this occasion, it was the Ivory coast forward that had the honours and he duly stepped up and pulled Arsenal back into the game.
