The £72m man has struggled for form since his arrival from Lille, but he finally delivered his first big moments in a Gunners shirt tonight versus Vitoria.
Pepe came on late in the second half during Arsenal’s Europa League tie and levelled the score at 2-2 with the most sublime of free-kicks.

Pepe still hasn’t scored from open play since joining Arsenal, with this only his second goal for the club, following a penalty against Aston Villa.
However, there can be no denying this is a world class strike and finally shows Gunners fans why their club paid quite so much for him this summer.
