Arsenal fans notice moment Pepe and Alioski reunite months after red card clash

Arsenal supporters have mocked Leeds United player Ezgjan Alioski after he trudged past Nicolas Pepe when he was substituted in their Premier League clash on Sunday.

The Gunners won the game 4-2 and Alioski was taken off when the score was 4-0, minutes after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang completed his hat-trick.

Alioski and Pepe were involved in an incident during the first game between the two sides this season and Pepe was sent off for a headbutt on his opponent.

Speaking ahead of Leeds' trip to the Emirates, Patrick Bamford revealed that Alioski was looking forward to going up against Pepe again.

Bamford said: "Do you know what? He [Alioski] said in the changing room, I can't wait for Sunday. I was like 'why?'. He said 'because I'm playing against my mate Pepe again'."

However, with Arsenal going on to win the game, Gunners fans certainly enjoyed seeing Alioski having to walk past Pepe after being taken off.

Taking to social media, one fan wrote: "Love to see it, Alioski giving it the biggen about Pepe to be subbed off because he’s nothing more than a championship player."

"An utterly dejected Alioski just trudged past Pepe (who is warming up) after being hauled off for his own good. I'm sure Pepe must have smiled to himself seeing that," wrote another.

"Pepe with the last Laugh", added a third.

Speaking after the game, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta was full of praise for Aubameyang, saying: "I thought he was superb today. He's been training really good the last week or so.
