Nicolas Pepe scores wonder strike as Arsenal beat Europa League group rivals Dundalk 3-0 on Thursday evening... with the Ivorian winger facing big season under Gunners boss and big admirer Mikel Arteta

Nicolas Pepe scored a wonderful curling effort to seal a 3-0 Europa League win for Arsenal against Irish side Dundalk on Thursday evening.

In the opening moments of the second half, the Ivorian winger scored the Gunners' final goal of the night by rolling the ball under his foot on the edge of the area before firing in a superb strike with his weaker right foot into the top corner of the goal

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta was full of praise for the 25-year-old's stunning strike after the game which was Pepe's second goal in three home games in north London.
