Nicolas Pepe finally comes good for Arsenal as he scores and tricks Luke Shaw inside 10 minutes vs Man Utd in the Premier League.
Manchester United have had a brilliant season against the other big six clubs this season. They have beaten Tottenham, Chelsea and Manchester City while drawing with Liverpool and Arsenal. However, it is the latter that look good to end that run and it’s all thanks to summer recruit Nicolas Pepe.
The Ivorian Winger was a player transformed as he set the tone of the match with a brilliant individual performance in the first 10 minutes of the match itself that saw Arsenal take a one goal lead against the visiting Manchester United.

The £72 million club record signing, Nicolas Pepe opened the scoring in the 8th minute of the match itself when he successfully placed the ball past David De Gea from a Sead Kolasinac pull back. He then displayed a tremendous bit of skill to floor Luke Shaw as he almost created another goal a couple of minutes later.
Arsenal lead Man United!
