Cardiff City 2 Arsenal 3: Aubameyang-Lacazette combination sees off Warnock's battlers

Share

At times, Ozil glided through the game, ghosting in behind Arsenal's chief attacking threats, and a midfield combination with Aaron Ramsey largely worked well.

Xhaka has split opinion among fans ever since arriving in a big-money deal from Borussia Mönchengladbach in 2016 but it seems a growing number are now exhausted of the Swiss international's errors.

Victor Camarasa and Danny Ward had responded to goals from Shkodran Mustafi and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and give Cardiff the hope of getting a draw.

When asked about his thoughts of managing United , one of the biggest clubs in the world, Mourinho was bullish in his reply. Of course we are judged for the titles we get now, especially if you have won titles as it can work.

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. A flick from outside of the boot from Lacazette saw the ball travel to Aubameyang, who then curled it in from distance to get Arsenal's second. Cech could, and should, have been punished.

Cech entered the game having made the most saves of any Premier League keeper in the opening three rounds but every mistake he makes is another argument in favour of giving new signing Bernd Leno a chance to show what he can do.

Cardiff are without Nathaniel Mendez-Laing and Aron Gunnarsson as they seek to open their Premier League goals account, while Junior Hoilett is also a major doubt. Arsenal need to sort these defensive problems out soon.

Xhaka needlessly gave away possession and Camarasa, the Spanish midfielder on loan from Real Betis, ended Cardiff's 315-minute wait for a league goal by reacting quicker than Monreal to Joe Bennett's cross. After beating West Ham last week, the Gunners have a little bit of momentum entering this one, as they look to overcome their slow start to the campaign.

Heading into that contest the Arsenal manager had been under fire for a failure to adapt his style to suit his squad, but if they can pick up successive victories at the Cardiff City Stadium much of that criticism will die down.

This afternoon, Ozil's influence was barely recognisable, with the German struggling to create any real opportunities for both himself and his teammates. As a result of that, he was deservedly given a start today by coach Unai Emery.
