Watch: Nicolas Pepe gets sent off for headbutting Gjanni Alioski
Arsenal struggled in the first half in West Yorkshire and were fortunate to see Leeds miss a host of chances in a mirroring of the two sides’ meeting in the FA Cup third round in January.
After Willian was replaced by Reiss Nelson at half-time, Pepe gave his manager Mikel Arteta a headache when he was caught headbutting Leeds left-back Gjanni Alioski by VAR.
We told you Leeds and Arsenal often gets nasty. And we love it.
