Emery insists Arsenal will continue to play out from the back

Monday, 03 Sep, 2018

Arsenal have now moved to ninth position on the Premier League table with six points after four games played this season.

The 25-year-old midfielder has started all three of Arsenal's Premier League games so far this season and he played the full 90 minutes during the 3-1 win over West Ham United last weekend.

Emery keeps faith with Petr Cech between the sticks, while in defence he picks Sokratis and Shkodran Mustafi as the centre-back pairing.

Both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette struck in the five goal thriller.

If Emery needs to change things against Cardiff then he can look to his bench, with options including Danny Welbeck and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

However, Cardiff pulled themselves level on the stroke of halftime as Victor Camarasa showed skill to control Joe Benett's cross before firing into the top corner.

Aubameyang scored the second for Arsenal with a sublime curling effort from outside the 18-yard area.

The Arsenal boss is set to give his summer signing Lucas Torreira his first start in the red shirt of the Londoners. Arsenal went ahead three times, because the first two times were counteracted by the resilient Cardiff.

Having headed Granit Xhaka's corner in at the 11th minute, Mustafi ran towards his teammate, crossing his hands as a reference to Albania's double-headed eagle, which is present on the country's national flag - and the same celebration that earned Xhaka a fine during the World Cup.

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

However Lacazette had the final say when he thundered a strike past Etheridge to get the goal his performance deserved.

Going into this match, the Bluebirds hadn't beaten Arsenal in the past 13 matches between the two sides, with their last victory against the north London side coming way back in 1961. His assist for the Aubameyang goal was exquisite and Lacazette's link-up play was excellent all afternoon. Arsenal need to sort these defensive problems out soon. They were gifted chances here and Arter could easily have punished Cech's early mistake, while Morrison's late header could still have snatched a point, but they were left empty-handed despite creating enough chances for a handful of goals.

There are no question marks on his shot-stopping ability but with Emery persisting with passing out from the back, surely it is time to offer Leno a chance to impress?

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