Mikel Arteta Holds Talks With Nicolas Pepe as Arsenal Manager's Patience Begins to 'Wear Thin'

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta held a private meeting with Nicolas Pepe on Tuesday following his red card against Leeds, with the Spaniard beginning to run out of patience with the winger.

Pepe forced his side to play the majority of the second half with just ten men after he was sent off for head-butting Leeds' Ezgjan Alioski. After the game, Arteta described Pepe's actions as 'unacceptable', while the Ivory Coast international himself issued an apology for his role in the incident.
