Nicolas Pepe Final Scores For Arsenal To Secure A Victory

Arsenal Record signing Nicolas Pepe came in as a substitute to score two late free kicks to save Arsenal's blushes and a victory to a 3-2 win over Vitoria Guimaraes in the Europa League last night.
The English club had twice come from behind as the visiting team club Guimaraes deservedly went ahead by scoring two goals cutesy  'Marcus Edwards' and Brazilian striker 'Bruno Duarte'.
Unai Emery made 10 changes from the team that lost at Sheffield United on Monday, with the continued absence of Mesut Ozil - who hasn't made the squad in a month - again making the pre-match headlines.
Obviously, the lack of creativity and control against a low rated club side made the absence of midfielder Ozil even more puzzling after a first half devoid of any attacking intelligence from the hosts.
The introduction of dual 'Daniel Ceballos' and 'Matteo Guendouzi' came on as a substitute at the start of the second half as the host team improved, but they still looked like suffering an embarrassing defeat until Nicolas Pepe entered the fray with 15 minutes left.
Nicolas Pepe fired a free kick into the bottom corner with ten minutes left to play, before finding the opposite corner in the second minute of stoppage time to get the Gunners out of jail.
