Summer signing Nicholas Pepe has been declared fit for Arsenal ahead of their Premier League clash with holders Manchester United to hand the Gunners a timely boost before the game.

According to the injury update from Arsenal, Ivorian international star Nicholas Pepe has recovered from injury and he is expected to take his place in the starting XI ahead of the Manchester City game.

Pepe sustained a bruised knee during the last Premier League game, a 3-1 away win at fellow London side West Ham United.

He suffered the injury following a challenge from West Ham United left-back Aaron Cresswell and still went on to score the second Arsenal goal to put the Gunners 2-1 ahead before he provided the third goal for leading goalscorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as the Gunners ran out 3-1 winners.

Gabriel Martinelli had earlier scored the equaliser for Arsenal in the second half to cancel out the first half advantage from West Ham centre back Angelo Ogbonna.

The West Ham win ended the long wait for victory for the Gunners in nine games in all competitions.

Arsenal signed Nicholas Pepe for a fee of around £72m from French Ligue 1 club Lille this summer and he has scored four goals for his new club till date.
