Nicolas Pepe Reveals Reason For Arsenal Transfer

Arsenal signed Nicolas Pepe from Lille for a record £72million fee and the Ivorian worldwide has so far made only two substitute appearances as Unai Emery integrates him into the squad since he missed all their pre-season matches.

The two remaining teams with 100% Premier League records this season go head-to-head on Saturday when Liverpool host a new-look Arsenal at Anfield in an encounter that will act as a barometer to measure the London club's progress.

It was a contrasting run for Pepe in the 2018-19 campaign after helping Lille qualify for the Champions League with 22 goals and 11 assists in Ligue 1.

The 23-year-old has played in Arsenal's opening two games in the Premier League, garnering 63 minutes of action.

"They've started well with a good away win at Newcastle and they got the job done at the weekend against Burnley, but really they are two games they were expected to win, so I'm not getting carried away", Parlour told TalkSport.

The signings of goalkeeper Alisson Becker and centre-back Virgil van Dijk were key moments for Klopp, and the organisation and calmness of Liverpool's defensive line gave them an edge over most of their rivals domestically and in Europe last season.

Emery admitted he would rather not play Liverpool this season but insists Arsenal will be positive when they face the European champions at Anfield on Saturday.
