Pepe was sent off shortly after half-time for headbutting Alioski, who has been criticised for over-acting to ensure the Arsenal star’s dismissal.
Both players have since been abused on social media – with some of the comments directed at them of a racist manner.
Arsenal on Monday morning released a statement to condemn the abuse.
“We utterly condemn the vile abuse directed at Nicolas Pepe and Ezgjan Alioski on social media following our match against Leeds United,” read the statement.
“This is completely unacceptable and we will be working with the police and authorities to do everything we can to trace and prosecute the culprits.”
