Arsenal’s coach Mikel Arteta expressed his frustration as the night did not yield in favor of Arsenal and Nicolas Pepe was shown the Red card after his actions on the field were unacceptable. The match ended in a goalless draw much to the frustration of Arsenal who was set on winning against Leeds United.
Pepe was suspended from the game six minutes in half time because the player headbutted Ezgjan Alioski in an off-the-ball incident. The recently promoted Marcelo Bielsa’s side never fails to impress in terms of effort but though they did not fail to create opportunities but, in converting them with 4 of the 25 shots on target. Arteta’s side meanwhile failed miserably to create opportunities at all with 2 of the 9 Shots on target. Arsenal is heading towards its lowest tally of goals since 1986/87 with just 9 goals in the season.
