Arsenal’s 72 Million pounds signing Nicolas Pepe was once again subjected to online trolls after he missed a sitter against Sheffield United on Monday night in Arsenal’s 1-0 defeat to the Blades.
Lys Mousset’s 30th-minute strike is all the newbies needed to register a famous win against the Gunners at the Bramall Lane and in the process moved to 9th in the English Premier League table as their impressive start to life in the top tier continued.
The main talking point from the match was, however, a 20th-minute miss from the Ivory Coast international. The former Lille man has struggled to replicate the form that saw Arsenal splash millions in the summer to acquire his service from the Ligue One side.
The 24-year initiated an attack before racing towards goal. He was clear on goal when Sead Kolasinac whipped in a cross and the astonishment of many, he terribly missed the ball with only the Blades Keeper Dean Henderson to beat.
The shocking miss one again initiated an online debate on why Arsenal splashed a lot of cash for the speedy left-footed forward.

Subbing off Nicolas Pépé, our only offensive threat this evening, while we’re chasing a 1-0 deficit. This club will kill me.

Pepe the portuguese CB is even more useful up front than this ECOWAS welbeck.
