Like Arsenal teammate Mesut Ozil, Nicolas Pepe has warned that stability or the face will be left in the cold.
Pepe scored against the Irish Minos Duntak 3-0 in the Europa League on Thursday night.
Root completed the moment after Arsenal resumed a record $ 72 million purchase and crashed into a loose ball on the edge of the area before firing home.
But he was not one of the Gunners’ best players, and made a handful of mistakes at Emirates, including being sent to side netting at an angle.
Former Arsenal defender Martin Conn is a 25-year-old fan who has praised his technique and creativity.

But if the keown Pepe Gunners can’t improve on him, he’s afraid to find himself at the wrong end of Michael Arteta’s tough threads, just like Ozil.
He told BT Sport: “These were the moments we were expecting when Pepe first arrived. We haven’t seen enough from this player, how can you get the best out of it?”
“We all talked about the fact that Ozil was not around and the manager said the player had failed. What about Pepe now? We are moving on to the next generation.
“How do you get the best out of him, and does he get the best out of himself?
“We saw some magic there. He’s creative, he’s technical, but it’s about bringing them out in the crucial moments for Arsenal.”
