"We've had a bit of a wake-up call with the style of play, but that needed to come from me really, they needed a new way of playing".

"Some special goals from them, quality goals".

Arsenal won this entertaining, error-strewn game with a sumptuous strike from the £46m Alexandre Lacazette, a reminder of the gap in resources between them and Cardiff City.

Emery has been tasked with getting the club back into the Champions League but according to the Mail on Sunday, Kroenke believes that the goal is ultimately winning the competition for what would be the first time in the clubs' history. However, once again, Cardiff fought back and got their second of the afternoon thanks to a great header from Danny Ward. Alexandre Lacazette took the ball in the box and powered Arsenal in front after 82 minutes.

It was a case of third time lucky for Arsenal as Cardiff had no response to Lacazette's finish, with the match finishing 3-2 to the Gunners. Meanwhile, Cardiff are still waiting for that first Premier League win of this campaign. The most important thing for us was to stay calm. "I like this spirit and also the possibility to play for the first 11 is okay". 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.

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.

The lead lasted only just eight minutes before Daniel Ward equalised for Cardiff City.

He couldn't have done much about the second goal, though. The France global also set up Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to make it 2-1 in the 62nd, making a strong argument for why the two forwards should be starting together regularly.

Gabon worldwide Pierre Aubameyang increased the scoreline for the Gunners in the 62nd minute and it was Lacazette that provided the assist.

Watford has won all four of its Premier League games and joins Liverpool and Chelsea with a maximum total of 12 points at the top of the table.

Yet Warnock's side lacked nothing in determination and they constantly scared Arsenal, whose defence remains unconvincing.

26-year-old Shaqiri, who plays for Stoke City, said after the match that "it's just emotion" when he was quizzed about the way he celebrated. Still, the Gunners now have six points on the board for the season. Cech could, and should, have been punished.

Cech entered the game having made the most saves of any Premier League keeper in the opening three rounds but every mistake he makes is another argument in favour of giving new signing Bernd Leno a chance to show what he can do. Emery has struggled to fit all of Arsenal's high-priced stars on the field at the same time.
