Come and play for me! Warnock's offer to Ozil

Etheridge was alert to the danger in the 54th minute when he parried away Mustafi's header at the back post from a corner, before getting down to save Monreal's right-footed shot second later.

"They are playing minutes each match and today they started", Emery added.

The goal Cardiff craved came in the second minute of stoppage time at the end of the first half.

Aaron Ramsey left Cardiff as a teenager, when Arsenal won the battle with Manchester United for his signature.

Arsenal manager, Unai Emery has insisted that he is "very pleased" with his striker, Alexandre Lacazette, after he inspired Arsenal to a 3-2 victory over Cardiff City on Sunday.

First goals of the season from Shkodran Mustafi and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang twice put Arsenal in control, but twice Cardiff profited from some lax defending to equalise through Victor Camarasa and Danny Ward.

Sunday's encounter was a game most would have expected Cardiff to lose but they will rue the result as an opportunity lost after almost snatching a valuable point.

Manchester City players not fit, says Pep Guardiola
"They destroyed the championship last season, the way they played attractive football", Guardiola said of Wolves . We have to choose, now Mendy is playing more wide.

"It was the same when we needed to win after the first two games, to be calm, which is the most important thing".

Nevertheless, the continual adjustments to Emery's stylistic demands proved not to be a hindrance to Arsenal as they came away with their first three points on the road in the new Premier League season.

The north London side finished in sixth place in the Premier League table and without a trophy under Arsene Wenger last season. But they managed to get two against Arsenal's defence, which has been terrible all four games so far this season.

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

Cech nearly made a mistake within the first 30 seconds of the match, hesitating on the ball near his goal line before just evading capture and embarrassment from the Cardiff attack.

Despite providing a strong performance - and two goals to please the home support - Warnock's side couldn't get anything from the game. Petr Cech has been horrendous in most matches, and I have no idea how he keeps starting.
