The same statement was issued by Leeds who condemned the same vice on Ezgjan Alioski following a controversial encounter that saw the Arsenal winger receiving a straight red card.
Pepe for the first time started in the clash alongside Aubameyang and William to end a request by the former Lille man to have a regular start.
His impact was key in the attack which failed to convert opportunities into goals extending Mikel Arteta’s lack of goals in the league.
Speaking after the fixture, Arteta termed Nicolas Pepe’s actions as unacceptable something that he also disccued with him.
