Arsenal star singled out for criticism following Sunderland objective



Arsenal versus Sunderland

Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal hosted League One team Sunderland in a League Cup match on Tuesday.

The two teams fought alongside Brentford, Chelsea, West Ham, Tottenham, Liverpool and Leicester for a place in this season’s semifinals.

With Sunderland two divisions behind Arsenal, Arteta took the chance to field a slightly weaker team, while some young talents like Eddie Nketiah and Folarin Balogun were also in the starting blocks.

The Gunners should still have had enough to see Sunderland, however, especially when they looked at their star-studded bench.

Nicolas Pepe goes from hero to villain

So it was not surprising that the home side took the lead after 16 minutes when Eddie Nketiah hit the net:

Nicolas Pepe then combined with Cedric Soares before his deflected shot hit the net to make it 2-0 in the 27th minute.

But just as it looked like Arsenal would run away with the game, Nathan Broadhead was slipped in and tried to make an attempt on a charging Bernd Leno to make it 2-1.

Following Broadhead’s goal, Nicolas Pepe was heavily criticized for his lack of commitment and defensive awareness leading up to the goal, with just a few of the reactions shown below:
