Nicolas Pepe impresses Freddie Ljungberg with superb skill in Arsenal training

Nicolas Pepe has done his chances of winning back his place at Arsenal no harm after impressing Freddie Ljungberg in training before Thursday’s clash with Brighton.

The £72 million summer signing was left on the bench in Ljungberg’s first game in charge as interim manager as Arsenal were held to a 2-2 draw by Norwich City on Sunday.

After the match at Carrow Road, Ljungberg called on Pepe to step up his performances in training as it would lead to securing a place in the starting line-up.
