Lots of Arsenal fans have been slamming the performance of Nicolas Pepe in their 3-0 home loss to Liverpool in the Premier League on Saturday night.
Two goals from Diogo Jota either side of a Mo Salah strike were more than enough in the end to give Jurgen Klopp’s team all three points at the Emirates Stadium and thus aid their late Champions League qualification push.
Should Arsenal start Pepe?
Pepe was left very isolated on the right wing, having recorded fewer touches in the game (35) than his own goalkeeper Bernd Leno (37), as he also lost out on six of his duels and failed to record a single key pass or accurate cross, earning him a measly 6.3 overall rating on Sofascore.
Arsenal fans on Pepe display
These Gooners slammed the 25-year-old’s performance on Twitter, with one Arsenal supporter even going as far as to claim that the former Lille star is a ‘fraud’:
“Get rid of Auba, Laca, Pepe, Bellerin all been poor. Laca and Auba had spells of playing well but way too inconsistent for what we need. Also we need to bring in another 1st choice keeper as Leno is garbage mind made up with him now #afc”
“How many more chances does the guy need to come out of his shell? It’s been 2 years now, but I still don’t know what he brings to the team in spite of all the “Pepe will come good” tweets after one or two decent performances. Time’s up, man. #ARSLIV #AFC”
“In some matches Auba and Pepe are a waste of space #AFC #ARS #Arsenal”
“Pepe is dirt and no one will ever convince me otherwise #AFC”
“#AFC As long as we keep relying on the likes of Auba, Pepe and Willian for goals, we’ll remain an average, mediocre club. They have absolutely nothing to offer. @Arsenal”
“Pepe is still a fraud of a footballer. Sell him and play Smith-Rowe or Nelson. #AFC”
