Pep Guardiola told the secret of becoming Mikel Arteta’s favourites


Arsenal star Nicolas Pepe might have done a lot to impress at the Emirates Stadium but there is something he is not doing that will earn him the pleasure of being the favourite of manager Mikel Arteta.

The Ivory Coast international joined the North London outfit in the 2019 summer for a whopping £72 million but he is yet to be consistent with what he is known for but his performance has continued to improve by the day.

An Arsenal legend Sol Campell in his analysis of Nicolas Pepe stated that the player will do great things at the Emirates Stadium, especially after making the starting XI in the 1-0 defeat against Man City on Saturday evening.

The Arsenal legend admits that Nicolas Pepe is a drifter and he is smooth at doing that but he must ensure that he gets into gear and be more consistent with it.

In addition, he stated that the former Lille winger must deliver when he gets to the danger zone by finding the back of the net as that is the only way he can be a favourite of the Spanish boss.

Sol Campbell insists that Nicolas Pepe will be Mikel Arteta’s favourite if he scores more goals or gives the goalkeeper more work to do.
