Arsenal overcome familiar defensive calamities to win at Cardiff

But, despite making hard work of seeing off the promoted Welsh side, Arsenal sealed maximum points with Lacazette's late strike to record only their second away Premier League win since December. As a result of that, he was deservedly given a start today by coach Unai Emery.

Cardiff were one of the most popular picks to be relegated before the season started. His assist for the Aubameyang goal was exquisite and Lacazette's link-up play was excellent all afternoon.

Aubameyang restored Arsenal's lead in the 62nd minute, scoring his first goal of the season after Lacazette laid off for his teammate at the top of the area.

But Ozil's Arsenal career remains unfulfilled and Wenger's approach to getting the best out of a player who has rarely dominated games for his club in the way he has often done for his country has understandably been questioned.

Although Argento has disputed the contents of The Times article, a company spokeswoman has said The Times stands by it. Variety's report has not yet been confirmed by Sky Italia and Fremantlemedia, which produce the show.

Cardiff scored their first Premier League goal of the season on their 41st attempt.

The Gunners have now managed to keep only four clean sheets in their last 24 League games. His inability to track back also left right-back Hector Bellerin much too exposed on counterattacks.

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.

On his fifth anniversary of signing for Arsenal, Mesut Ozil had a great chance to show he can still be a key part of the team's future as he was back in the line-up after missing out with an illness last weekend. The 22-year-old Uruguayan did very well for his national side in the World Cup and has looked fantastic every time he has played for Arsenal as well.

Former Producer Accuses NBC of Trying to Stop Weinstein Reporting
Once the story broke, NBC News employees were confused as to why their bosses had willingly let go of such an explosive story. In a statement to the Times responding to McHugh's claims, Farrow praised his former producer and offered words of support.

Emery opted to start both Lacazette and Aubameyang against Cardiff and the decision paid dividends, with Lacazette providing an assist for his team-mate before scoring the victor.

Arsenal had an opportunity of their own moments later when Aaron Ramsey found space inside the Cardiff box, but the Welshman's low effort was saved by the diving Neil Etheridge.

His gesture comes on the back of comments from former Liverpool defender Stephane Henchoz, who recently spoke out about Xhaka and Shaqiri's celebrations at the World Cup. In fact, Xhaka's error lead to Cardiff's first goal.
