Premier league news Arsenal games Nicolas Pepe will miss after red card against Leeds United Last spor news
MetiNews.Com - Nicolas Pepe is set for a spell on the sidelines when it comes to Premier League action following his red card during Arsenal's goalless draw with Leeds United.
Breaking News ! Nicolas Pepe is set to miss three Arsenal fixtures following his red card against Leeds United on Sunday evening. The Frenchman was sent for an early bath just six minutes into the second half after an apparent headbutt on Leeds' Ezgjan Alioski. The red card didn't have too much of an impact on the result, Arsenal holding out for a goalless draw having already struggled to get into the game while Pepe was still on the pitch. The Gunners now face three games without one of their wingers as they look to improve on a poor start to the campaign, but what games does that include?

Arsenal do have the opportunity to appeal the decision but given the footage of the headbutt is very clear, that's not an avenue they are likely to pursue and Pepe's three-match league suspension will ensue. Though, Pepe will still be eligible to feature in the Europa League with the Gunners taking on Molde, Rapid Wien and Dundalk before the winger's Premier League ban comes to an end.

The game against Leeds was Pepe's eighth Premier League appearance of the season, and 12th overall, but he now faces a difficult conversation with Arteta following the outburst. The Gunners boss is not likely to be best pleased with Pepe whose performance during the time he was on the pitch didn't exactly make up for the dismissal. No doubt, the Frenchman will have been relieved to see his teammates hold on for a point after struggling at Elland Road, but he now has the unenviable task of earning another opportunity after letting his boss and teammates down.
