Video: Arsenal Fans Hammer Nicolas Pepe for Missing ‘Sitter’ Against Sheffield Utd

Arsenal forward Nicolas Pepe has been hammered by the club’s supporters tonight after missing a pretty remarkable sitter against Sheffield United.

The Ivory Coast international has struggled to adapt to English football ever since his mammoth ยฃ72 million move from Lille during the summer transfer window, and we told you how his display against Manchester United at the end of last month was criticised by Gooners on social media.

And now the North London club’s fan base have been targeting Pepe once again, after the 24-year-old failed to connect with the ball with his favoured left foot, and left the Sheffield United goalmouth tantalisingly gaping:

It’s not the worst miss we’ve ever seen, but it’s probably fair to say we’d expect a player of Pepe’s price-tag and calibre to comfortably tuck that into the back of the net, don’t you think?

What do you think of the miss, and Pepe’s general start to life as an Arsenal player?
