Potential Arsenal Lineup against Cardiff City

Mesut Ozil is in contention to make his Arsenal return against Cardiff on Sunday

Arsenal on Sunday, September 2, produced superb performance in their Premier League game beating Cardiff City 3-2 in a tough encounter. Petr Cech also had a nightmare with the ball at his feet and if Unai Emery is intent on playing the ball out from the back it may be time for Bernd Leno.

After a quiet start to the half, Arsenal went back in front after the hour mark, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang send a fine curling effort into the back of the net.

Lacazette was afforded time and space to shoot on 33 minutes and he nearly made the hosts pay, only to see his low strike from 19 yards out hit the base of the left post.

Arsenal attempted to reassert their earlier authority after the break as Cardiff were penned back. If Emery wants to get all three on the field at the same time, Emery is forced to shift two of the three out wide.

The Germany worldwide broke the deadlock in the 11th minute with a powerful header from Granit Xhaka's corner. Here are five things we learned from the game.

Both the Gabonese global and Frenchman were still seeking their first goals of the season.

Inside the first minute of the game, Cech was nearly dispossessed in his own six yard box by Cardiff's Bobby Reid, and then a pass across his own goalmouth was a whisker away from being intercepted by Danny Ward.

However Lacazette had the final say when he thundered a strike past Etheridge to get the goal his performance deserved. Today was no different, his distribution was poor and his goalkeeping for the first goal could have been much better.

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.

"The Premier League is a different game and you have to move and change accordingly", Warnock explained.

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