Gary Lineker slams one Arsenal star for display vs Leeds
BBC pundit and former England international Gary Lineker took to social media to hit out at one of the Arsenal stars who featured in the draw away to Leeds United on Sunday.
The Gunners returned from the international break with a point to prove, after being emphatically beaten 3-0 at home by Aston Villa two weeks ago.
With his team in need of a much better result on Sunday, Mikel Arteta decided to make a couple of changes to his starting eleven as Nicolas Pepe was handed a start with Alexandre Lacazette dropping to the bench.
Arsenal were outplayed by the home side for much of the first half and matters got worse after the break as Pepe was sent off following a headbutt on Ezgjan Alioski.
It was a moment which forced an already below-par Arsenal into settling for a point as Leeds wasted several chances to snatch a win.
After witnessing what Pepe did to get sent off, Gary Lineker bashed the Ivorian on social media.
What an idiotic thing to do by Pepe.
