Arsenal's Nicolas Pepe Scored An Absolute Scorcher Against West Ham Tonight

By Mike Parrott

Nicolas Pepe has finally scored his first goal for Arsenal from open-play and it was an absolute scorcher to say the least.

Nicolas Pepe has had a torrid start to life at Arsenal this Season. With only goals from free-kicks and the penalty spot, Pepe has had his fair share of doubters since joining the Gunners.


However, his first open-play goal for Arsenal was a peach.

West Ham's Arthur Masuaku allowed Pepe to receive the ball in his favoured position, where he could lay the ball off onto his right side, and was able to bend the ball to the far corner.

This comes as Pepe's first open-play goal for Arsenal since his £72 Million transfer to the Gunners with many people doubting if he could acclimate to the Premier League after his slow start to the Season.


However, many Arsenal fans might have calmed their doubts now after seeing Pepe score one of his trademark goals that saw him score many, many goals for Lille last year in Ligue One.

Arsenal are currently 3-1 up against West Ham United with goals from Gabriel Martinelli, Pepe and Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang.
