Ben Mee won’t want to see Nicolas Pepe again anytime soon after being on the receiving end of some lovely skill from the Arsenal winger.
Pepe was a summer signing for Unai Emery’s side, joining the club in a £72million move from Lille.
And after climbing off the bench to make his debut in the Premier League opening weekend win over Newcastle last week, the Frenchman got his first start at home to Burnley today.Embed from Getty Images
It was a very impressive debut from the winger as he was a constant thorn in the side of Sean Dyche’s team.
His standout moment though? Nutmegging defender Mee late on. It was so good that BT Sport’s Twitter account clipped it up:
Arsenal fans will absolutely love that.
Their 2-1 win means it’s two victories to open up the Premier League campaign for Emery’s men.
And their performance today shows that they will be a formidable opponent throughout this season.
