Arsenal: Fans slate Nicolas Pepe after performance in draw away to Manchester United - Arsenal

Some Arsenal fans compared the £67.5m-rated Pepe to former Arsenal man Alex Iwobi, who scored just 15 goals in 149 appearances for the club.

Here is a selection of tweets from the Emirates Stadium faithful:
