Arsenal attacker Nicolas Pepe concedes his form hasn't been good enough.

Still without a goal in open play, the Ivorian hasn't come close to living up to his £72million transfer fee after four months at Arsenal.

Afterwards defeat to Brighton, he told RMC Sport: "I would say that my start has been a bit negative.

"Based on my own expectations of myself, I expected a bit more. I expect more and it is up to me to work hard and make the difference in each match.

"It is normal for people to criticise me as much as they are doing because I am not making the difference in each match.

"I understand them. It is certainly up to me to reverse this situation through hard work.

"There are lots of aspects that I need to improve.

"Scoring more quickly, taking the opportunities to score that I've been missing. It's like that, that's football.

"I also need to improve on the physical aspect because coming from France to England, there is this box-to-box aspect that you have to take into account."

Arsenal attacker Pepe: Ljungberg understands us better

Arsenal attacker Nicolas Pepe admits seeing Unai Emery sacked was "painful".

Emery signed Pepe from Lille over the summer.

Afterwards defeat to Brighton, he told RMC Sport that the players were still adjusting to caretaker manager Freddie Ljungberg's methods.

He said, "As [Ljungberg ] was a player, he understands us better.

"He speaks a lot with us, so for us it is quite simple for us to understand him like for him it is quite easy to understand us.

"It was painful because [Emery] is a coach who gave me the chance to come to Arsenal. We mustn't forget that. For me, it was something painful."

Flamengo star Gabriel Barbosa: Everyone wants to play for Liverpool

Flamengo star Gabriel Barbosa: Everyone wants to play for Liverpool

Flamengo star Gabriel Barbosa admits he hopes to play with Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino in the future.

The Brazilians could face-off in the final of the Club World Cup this month.

On-loan Inter Milan striker Gabigol told The Sun: “Firmino is great, I really admire him. He's been successful for many years in Europe.

“He is a powerful forward and he has been great for Brazil. He is an inspiration that I look up to.

“It would be a pleasure to play with him. Maybe we could team up for Brazil in the future and Liverpool is a team that everyone wants to play for.

“But it's hard to talk about this at the moment. My focus is totally on the Club World Cup.

“I like the Premier League very much. It combines technique, strength and speed. I always follow the games from Brazil.

“It really is a place I would like to play. It's one of the best leagues in the world.

“Every player dreams of being a champion and winning the Premier League must be indescribable.

“But I still have a contract with Inter Milan and Flamengo until the end of 2019.

“We have a very important tournament ahead and my whole focus is on it. I will think about the future after this competition."

Leicester make Rodgers among world's highest paid managers

Leicester make Rodgers among world's highest paid managers

Leicester City have made Brendan Rodgers among the highest paid managers in the world.

The Sun says the 46-year-old is believed to have DOUBLED his previous salary at Leicester - taking from £5million-a-year to £10million.

This means that only old foes Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho are paid more than the Foxes gaffer.

Guardiola is the highest paid, earning an astonishing £20million-a-year at Manchester City - that's around £384,000-a-week.

While Mourinho is second, somehow having bagged himself a £15million-a-year contract at Spurs despite having been sacked by his last two clubs.

Behind Rodgers then, are the rest, including Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.
