Arsenal's Nicolas Pepe left two Burnley defenders for dead with brilliant skill

Nicolas Pepe left Ben Mee for dead

Nicolas Pepe made his Arsenal home debut today in the 2-1 victory over Burnley after signing from Lille this summer in a £72m deal.

The Ivorian winger is the Gunners' record signing and represented a fantastic summer of business from Unai Emery's side.

Pepe is a goal scoring winger, renowned for his silky skills and deadly left foot.

And in the win over Burnley at the Emirates, Pepe announced himself to the home crowd with some effortlessly brilliant skills to leave two opposing defenders for dead.

How does he make this look so easy?


The reaction from Ben Mee says it all.

Pepe was brought on at half-time by Emery for Reiss Nelson and impressed on his home bow.

Alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette in a front three, the Ivorian looked right at home, combining well with Ainsley Maitland-Niles on a number of occasions.

The summer arrival will take time to get up to speed after not having a pre-season, but it seems clear already that Arsenal have a seriously talented player on their hands.
