Arsenal fans have been bemoaning the latest update on winger Nicolas Pepe ahead of the Europa League game against Standard Liege tomorrow.
It was revealed by the club that the Ivory Coast international will miss the game against the Belgian side and could also miss the crucial Premier League fixture against Manchester City on the weekend.
Pepe seems to have worked his way back to form after he notched up a goal and assist in the 3-1 comeback victory over West Ham United on Monday.
It was the Ivorian’s first goal from open play for the club in what was his 18th game in all competitions (via Transfermarkt).
All in all, the 23-year-old has scored and assisted eight goals in the Europa League and the top-flight.
However, Pepe isn’t the only player who is suffering from an injury with Hector Bellerin and Granit Xhaka also out of tomorrow’s clash.
Fans were bemoaning the potential loss of Pepe on Sunday as they took to Twitter to react. Here is a selection of tweets from Gooners:
costed us pepe, Tierney and xhaka to win west ham. They realy hammerd us bruh. @Arsenal

So Pepe just came good and now he’s injured. Can we just cancel this season?? If we agree with PL to finish 16th, can we just cancel the rest of our games??😂😂
