Premier League giants Arsenal came from behind twice to win their Europa League clash with Victoria Guimares FC of Portugal thereby maintaining their perfect start to the season in that competition.

The Gunners have now won all three games in the Europa League this season and the latest win came with several hurdles.

Arsenal were behind for the majority of the game but still managed to win the game with the help of club-record signing Nicholas Pepe.

The Ivorian international came off the bench to produce two well taken freekicks thus helping Arsenal to overcome a 2-1 deficit at home via a 3-2 win.

Nicholas Pepe joined Arsenal from French Ligue 1 outfit Lille in the summer after spending two successful seasons with the Champions League campaigners.

Lille received 72 million pounds for his transfer this summer.

Pepe has not had the best of times at Arsenal since the move after netting just one goal before the Vitoria Guimares game.

The lone strike came from the penalty spot during the Premier League win over newly promoted outfit Aston Villa.

Nicholas Pepe scored one of the goals as 10-man Arsenal came from a goal down twice before beating the former European champions 3-2 in their league clash.
