It was Nicolas Pepe who could score a goal in front of Dundalk, however, he grew disheartened in 3-0 win of Arsenal.

Arsenal leader is eager to give help to Nicolas Pepe, but

Mikel Arteta

criticizes Pepe to be more consistent.

 

"It's about him hitting his best, every single week. I believe this is where he believes he can do better and we have to try to help him.

 

"It's about finding the consistency, not through the games but during the games as well, to be more insistent and be able to do the right thing in many, many occasions when he has to make the right decisions on the pitch.

The left-footed Pepe scored Thursday's goal with his right leg.

 

"It is nothing to do with me," Arteta added. "That was his action, he scored a magnificent goal. He's been [unpredictable] a little bit more recently, going down the outside is something he can do.

 

"It's just about when he attracts people as well and frees something, the last pass, the last delivery, which foot he needs to attack of the defender sometimes as well to make things easier for him, the starting position sometimes is not right.

 

Pepe

is hopeful to find a satisfying place in the Gunners XI at Manchester United this weekend.

 

 

"They are always in the frame to play,"

Arteta

said of his Europa League stars. "It's not because we lose or win, it's what they bring to the team, how they train, what they are showing.

 

Arteta was asked about the pressure of the player's price tag: "Knowing

Nico

, I don't think it's something that worries him too much.

"It's about him hitting his best, every single week. I believe this is where he believes he can do better and we have to try to help him.

"I think he's so willing to do well and show everybody and first of all his team-mates, myself and then the fans that he's a player that can make the difference every week. 

"Obviously, he's not been first choice in a lot of games but, to be fair, he's played quite a lot of moments better than others.
