Arsenal Receive Massive Boost Ahead Of Their Match Against Cardiff City

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil and head coach Unai Emery

Cardiff scored their first Premier League goal of the season on their 41st attempt.

Alexandre Lacazette scored the victor nine minutes from time as Arsenal eventually beat Cardiff City 3-2 for their first away win of the season. Petr Cech has been horrendous in most matches, and I have no idea how he keeps starting.

Mesut Ozil did not play in Arsenal's 3-1 win last weekend against West Ham, while Alexandre Lacazette and Lucas Torreira came off of the bench as second-half substitutes.

Cardiff's high press made it an uncomfortable start for Petr Cech between the Arsenal sticks, with the experienced goalkeeper nearly caught out on a couple of occasions inside his own box.

Chances continued to come at both ends, with Xhaka seeing his first-time strike deflected over by Arter on 56 minutes, while Ward curled an effort over from 16 yards out two minutes later after cutting inside from the right.

"But in the Premier League there are too many good players in defence and we never create anything".

The Germany global broke the deadlock in the 11th minute with a powerful header from Granit Xhaka's corner. Showed he can deliver a corner when setting up Mustafi's goal but sadly set up Cardiff's too with a awful attempt at a cross-field pass.

Frank Field says Labour has threatened to kick him out of party
A number of Mr Field's Labour colleagues have praised him and expressed their own concerns about their party. In the letter he said allegations made to Labour about bullying had resulted in "no decisive action".

Lacazette shot over with his back to goal and Mustafi nearly profited from another set-piece.

He was also encouraged by the way Lacazette and Aubameyang played in tandem.

Arsenal pressed forward but couldn't find the crucial second goal as Cardiff equalised just before half-time.

Xhaka has been a regular fixture in the Arsenal team but most Gunners fans would admit that he is yet to step his game up and produce consistent displays this term.

In Arsene Wenger's final season in charge of the Gunners, they finished a disappointing sixth in the Premier League and will be looking to improve upon that performance this season.

There are no question marks on his shot-stopping ability but with Emery persisting with passing out from the back, surely it is time to offer Leno a chance to impress? All of Arsenal's current injury problems are to defenders, with the big worries being Sead Kolasinac and Ainsley Maitland-Niles as they are only alternatives to Nacho Monreal at left-back.

According to reports, Unai Emery has personally stood in the way of allowing Emile Smith-Rowe to be sent out on loan this season.
