Arsenal: Fans stand by Nicolas Pepe after ‘chances created’ tweet

Arsenal fans are standing by Nicolas Pepe after a tweet was shared showing the number of chances created in the team this season.

According to a user on Twitter, the summer signing has created the most chances for the club this season with 12.

The Ivorian has been taking fire from all angles after his £72m move from Lille in the summer.

Following the game away to Manchester United, Sky Sports pundit Roy Keane blasted the Ivory Coast international, claiming his body language was bad and said Bukayo Saka looked more like the £72m forward (Sky Sports via The Mirror).

Pepe has struggled with the north London giants this season, scoring just one goal and assisting two in his 10 games across the Premier League and Europa League (via Transfermarkt).

After the revelation of the statistic about the number of chances created this season, fans launched a defence of their summer signing as they took to Twitter to react.

Here is a selection of tweets from Gooners:
