Nicolas Pepe was once again at his best in our victory against Crystal Palace on Wednesday night.
The Ivorian forward has been in fine form over the past few months, and he scored two well-taken goals to secure us a big three points on the road.
So how impressed has Mikel Arteta been with Pepe?
“It’s my feeling and it’s everybody’s feeling in the coaching staff, and his own feeling that he’s come a long way this season,” our manager told Arsenal.com.
“He hasn’t had the consistency sometimes in the gametime, but I think in Europe he’s been terrific and in the Premier League he’s started to show much more what he’s like, and he’s very hungry.
“I think he’s changed a lot in his mentality and his willingness to do much more.”
