Arsenal manager, Unai Emery, has revealed it was Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s decision to hand over penalties duties to Nicolas Pepe, during Arsenal’s thrilling 3-2 win over Aston Villa.

Pepe scored his first goal for the Gunners from the spot, in the second half of a pulsating game with Villa.

But fans were surprised to see the Ex-Lille winger step up to take the penalty.

Aubameyang is Arsenal’s usual penalty taker and Emery confirmed after the game his top goalscorer handed over the responsibility to Pepe.
