Sunday's EPL Action! - Important Surprises

First Up - Cardiff v Arsenal Unai Emery once said something along the lines of 'I'd rather win 4-3 than 1-0', and he wasn't far off in this thrilling encounter in Southern Wales. Arsenal fans finally got to see what Aubameyang and Lacazette could do when playing together, and it was this pairing that provided just about all the potency as Arsenal finally sealed the points on 80 minutes, when, Man of the Match, Lacazette blasted home from inside the box. In an encounter which was bruising, and appearing to be bruising, there was a mix of hard tackles and more diving than at a pearl farm. Cardiff gave a great account of themselves, but what really impressed us was that Arsenal have come from behind in the last two games and won, scoring three goals in each! Arsenal have gone some way to justifying themselves after Troy Deeney of Watford said that Arsenal lacked another word for bravery....Speaking of Watford...

Cardiff 2 - Arsenal 3(Gunners Player Ratings)

Player Ratings For The Gunners
What a cracker of a match, Arsenal leaving it until 80 minutes for Lacazette to fire home and give Arsenal the points, a hard fought but deserved 3-2 victory over Cardiff.  It has been 10 years since Ramsey left this area and it was a shame to see him booed by the Cardiff fans. However, all fans, on both sides, will have been pleased to see such an entertaining match, hard fought by both sides. For Arsenal, starting the match with both Aubameyang and Lacazette, this was a trial that must continue. The pairing of the two is lethal and potent. Arsenal fans have been screaming for it for a long time and deservedly so. However, with regard to the Arsenal player ratings, here's my thoughts:
Cech: 6 - still struggling with the playing out from the back philosophy, maybe time to give Leno a start. Bellerin: 6.5 - Shows great pace but his crossing was lacking a little bit. Emery should start Lichsteiner to give Bellerin more fight. Mustafi: 7 - Has improved…

Arsenal Field Possibly Their Best Eleven v Cardiff City

Arsenal Lineup For Cardiff Match The fans have screamed for it, now it looks like it's gonna happen! Aubameyang and Lacazette to start together in a league match.  Yes, the time is here. What with Arsenal's dismal away form, Emery is trying to shock Arsenal into turning things around with this pairing. The full lineup for the Gunners is as follows: Cech Bellerin    Mustafi   Sokratis   Monreal Xhaka   Guendouzi Ramsey   Ozil   Aubameyang Lacazette Let's hope this turns into a good one for Arsenal! I guess that if this doesn't work, it's hard to see them presenting any serious challenge to the title, or the top four for that matter. Anyway, the games starts in about half an hour!
