Lacazette lifts Emery as Arsenal subdue Cardiff

  • Arsenal team news predicted line up Cardiff

Victor Camarasa and Danny Ward grabbed equalisers as Cardiff scored their first goals since returning to the Premier League - but Arsenal held on for only their second away league win in 2018. Petr Cech has been horrendous in most matches, and I have no idea how he keeps starting.

Both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette struck in the five goal thriller.

MD Aaron Ramsey, 7 - was sacked up from the word go against his former side and nearly scored on nine minutes from a clever corner routine.

Arsenal attempted to reassert their earlier authority after the break as Cardiff were penned back.

The Gunners took the lead on 11 minutes as defender Shkodran Mustafi rose well from a corner to head past Cardiff goalkeeper Neil Etheridge.

There were defensive headaches too which came to the fore in first half stoppage-time when Xhaka's poor pass was intercepted, Nacho Monreal failed to execute a simple interception from Joe Bennett's cross and Camarasa spun to find the roof of the Arsenal net.

The error sparked a backlash from angry fans on Twitter with many slamming the midfielder for his sloppy pass and pointing out this isn't the first time Xhaka has cost us goals this season [or over the past two years for that matter]. Showed he can deliver a corner when setting up Mustafi's goal but sadly set up Cardiff's too with a bad attempt at a cross-field pass.

Additionally, the manager must also think hard about how much time Cech will be given to improve his passing ability, as the goalkeeper's struggles to play out from the back almost cost Arsenal again.

Tributes Pour in for Senator John McCain, But Not From Trump
Former McCain campaign chairman Rick Davis outlined plans for five days of memorials to McCain, who died Saturday at age 81. Trump and McCain had a tense relationship, and McCain was one of the administration's most outspoken Republican critics.

It was not to be for the hosts, however, as Lacazette struck.

The lead lasted only just eight minutes before Daniel Ward equalised for Cardiff City.

81' GOAL! Lacazette makes the difference again today!

Going into this match, the Bluebirds hadn't beaten Arsenal in the past 13 matches between the two sides, with their last victory against the north London side coming way back in 1961.

They could have scored with mere minutes on the clock but after a Cech mistake, Arter blazed high and wide, with Arsenal scoring soon after.

And just three weeks into the new season, Wenger's replacement as Gunners manager has already discovered that getting the best out of Ozil could prove to be no easy task.

Unai Emery has exposed the player in his team that has given him selection headache so far, since arriving at the club in the summer.
