Watch: Nicolas Pepe forces Ben Mee to consider career with filthy nutmeg


Ben Mee was left looking like he was contemplating an existential crisis about being tricked by an outrageously beautiful nutmeg from Arsenal‘s Nicolas Pepe during the Gunners’ 2-1 victory over Burnley at the Emirates on Saturday.

Goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang were enough for Arsenal to secure all three points against Sean Dyche’s Burnley, who equalised just before half-time through Ashley Barnes.

Pepe became Arsenal’s club record signing when he joined in a £72million deal from from Lille in the summer but had to settle for a place on the bench against the Clarets.

After watching fellow new signing Dani Ceballos trick three Burnley players with a Maradona turn in the first half, Pepe entered the fray at the break and proceeded to pull off an early contender for Nutmeg of the Season.
