EPL: Pepe speaks on Arsenal finishing top-four, reveals what Arteta wants from him

Arsenal star, Nicolas Pepe has insisted that it is not ‘impossible’ for the Gunners to finish top-four this season in the Premier League table.

The Ivory Coast international also revealed what Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta wants from him.

Arsenal are currently in the tenth position on the Premier League log with 28 points from 22 matches.

“It’s going to be difficult to finish top-four this season, but it’s not impossible,” Pepe told Sky Sports.

“Looking ahead, our sole focus is on getting a win in our home game against Sheffield United, and in general we have to stop dropping points and making silly mistakes.”

He added: “The manager [Mikel Arteta] has stressed the importance of defending well as a team, and making interceptions when our opponents are trying to attack.

“He’s shown that he has real confidence in me, and he knows exactly what I’m capable of.

“In terms of working on my own game, he wants me to get into one-on-one situations, get crosses in, score goals and get assists, of course.”

Pepe joined Arsenal from Lille for £72million last year.
