In the 67th minute of this afternoon’s Premier League encounter between Arsenal and Brighton, Nicolas Pepe broke the deadlock with a magnificent strike.
Exciting youngster Bukayo Saka charged forward before laying the ball off to Arsenal’s marquee man, Pepe – a silky dribbler – created space for himself with some quick footwork before curling the ball into the top corner.
Brighton’s keeper Mat Ryan had no chance of stopping this.
