Cardiff City vs Arsenal, Premier League 2018-19

The pair scored a goal each in the 3-2 win to give Emery his first points on the road as Arsenal boss.

Shkodran Mustafi headed Arsenal ahead before Victor Camarasa equalised in first-half stoppage-time as Emery received another intensive lesson in the strengths and weaknesses in his squad.

"I like Emery. I think he's got great vision and he's got some good players, hasn't he?"

Arsenal secured the spoils in a five-goal thriller against Cardiff City, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette getting among the goals.

Unai Emery could ring in some essential changes to his team as Arsenal get set to face off against Cardiff City at the Cardiff City Stadium on Sunday.

Emery insisted on Friday that Ozil is happy playing that role rather than as a No.10 but the Germany worldwide did little here to show that's the case.

Asked whether he felt Ozil would play in the Welsh capital, Warnock jokingly replied: "I've got enough worries".

Mesut Ozil began seeing more of the ball and the German playmaker was involved in the third goal of the game.

Torreira, as mentioned earlier, could start against Cardiff, and his partner in central midfield could be Granit Xhaka, who vastly improved in the last game against West Ham United.

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.

Cardiff had a golden chance to take the lead in the eighth minute when Cech presented Harry Arter with the ball in a shooting position, but the midfielder's strike was too high. Petr Cech has been horrendous in most matches, and I have no idea how he keeps starting.

At one point Greek defender Sokratis could be seen telling Cech to waste time with his goal kicks - a facet of play which the experienced players know all about.

The goal Cardiff craved came in the second minute of stoppage time at the end of the first half.
