Nicolas Pepe has been urged to find more consistency in his game by Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta if he wants to become a regular starter under his leadership.

Pepe scored the pick of the goals as Arsenal overcame Irish side Dundalk 3-0 in the Europa League, with Eddie Nketiah and Joe Willock also netting for the hosts at the Emirates on Thursday.

The Ivorian winger, Arsenal's £72million record signing, rolled the ball brilliantly onto his right foot on the edge of the penalty area before striking home into the top right corner.

The Gunners head into the Premier League fixture in poor form, having lost three of their last four top-flight matches.
