Many Arsenal fans have been left slamming the display of Nicolas Pepe in their 2-2 draw at home to Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Monday night.
The former Lille star actually started off quite well, with a nice curling effort that was saved by Vicente Guaita and then tucked home by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the opening few minutes of the first half.
Should Arsenal start Pepe?
However, his performance became increasingly laboured, as he struggled to have any real impact on the game after that.
The Ivory Coast international lost out on 13 of his duels, and failed with five crossing attempts and five dribbles, while he also lost possession of the ball on no fewer than on 22 separate occasions in the match, the most out of any of his teammates to have set foot on the pitch (Sofascore).

These Gunners slammed his performance on Twitter, with one supporter even going as far as to claim that he has been ‘woeful’:
“I’m also done with Pepe at this club he’s so wasteful. He’s been overall woeful for £72m. Lille robbed us. Move him on in Jan and give a young player a chance.”
“Shocking all round, Partey and Pepe especially but I just don’t get Odegaard, very poor. Laca has to start. We are so much better with him”
“Another #pepe disasterclass should be nowhere near the starting 11.”
“A lot of very poor performances again tonight. Odegaard, Partey and ESR bad tonight and the usual rubbish from Pepe.”
“Pepe has to be one of the worst signings we’ve ever made, his time is up.”
“Pepe embarrassing stuff there…”
