‘It’s good for his confidence’: Unai Emery hails Alexandre Lacazette’s Cardiff performance

Unai Emery

Cardiff again came from behind to level in the 70th minute, however, with Danny Ward angling a brilliant header into the bottom corner after Morrison had made first contact.

DF Sokratis Papastathopoulos, 6 - Looked a little more comfortable in Arsenal's high line but the organisation for the two Cardiff goals was not good enough.

Lacazette capped an excellent display in his first start of the season by cracking the ball into the roof of the net from a tight angle.

But Arsenal's superior individual ability finally won the day when substitute Lucas Torreira fed Lacazette, whose turn of pace allowed him to rifle a victor inside the near post past Etheridge. On a much brighter note, we haven't lost to Cardiff in a competitive match for over 50 Years and they haven't scored in the last four.

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.

Shkodran Mustafi could be fined by the FA for his goal celebration after Arsenal opened the scoring against Cardiff City on Sunday. 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.

Lacazette has struggled for consistency since his move to the club while Aumbameyang had an impressive start to life in England last season following his blockbuster move from Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund. The Greek defender has put Cech in worrying situations way too many times this season already. 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.

62' GOAL! Aubameyang makes it count!

Unai Emery finally started Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang together for Arsenal in South Wales.

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

"If we had players like Lacazette, we would have won the game today". Lucas Torreira came off the bench to show everyone why he should be starting.
