Arteta: Pepe let the team down with unacceptable red card

Just five minutes into the second half, Pepe was spotted on cameras bringing his head towards Ezgjan Alioski and referee Anthony Taylor brandished a straight red to after watching replays on a pitchside monitor.

Arsenal, who lost 3-0 to Aston Villa before the international break, were second best for the majority and will be relieved to come away with a point.

Asked by Sky Sports about Pepe’s red card, Arteta bluntly replied: “It is unacceptable. Unacceptable. At this leve you cannot do it.

“Considering how early we got Pepe sent off we have to take it. I never like a draw but in the circumstances it’s a point. It is unacceptable.”

He added: “With 10 men it is a big disadvantage. I really liked the personality of the team when Pepe let the team down, how we stuck to do what we had to do and had a moment or two to win the game, but obviously it makes it really difficult.”
