Mesut Ozil of Arsenal sits at the players bench during a match against Atletico Madrid at the International Champions Cup match in Singapore on July 26, 2018.

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.

Arsenal have officially revealed their starting eleven and substitutes to lock horns with Neil Warnock's Cardiff City side this afternoon.

Emery's visitors regained the lead with nine minutes remaining through a powerful near-post finish by Alexandre Lacazette. Alexandre Lacazette took the ball in the box and powered Arsenal in front after 82 minutes.

Arsenal, meanwhile, have enjoyed a similarly slow start with just three points from their first three games, winning just one.

After the furore that followed straight Premier League defeats for Manchester United, Jose Mourinho's team produced a routine victory as it beat Burnley 2-0 on Sunday.

"We are continuing to work on the combinations".

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

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. Today was no different, his distribution was poor and his goalkeeping for the first goal could have been much better.

Perhaps they should start together more often?

"The Premier League is a different game and you have to move and change accordingly", Warnock explained.

Neil Warnock's men head into the game looking for their first win and their first goal, having picked up two points from their first three games. Cech could, and should, have been punished.

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

But it looks like he has still not impressed Emery enough to be a starter for Arsenal.

Cardiff are without Nathaniel Mendez-Laing and Aron Gunnarsson as they seek to open their Premier League goals account, while Junior Hoilett is also a major doubt. Arsenal need to sort these defensive problems out soon.

Jamie Redknapp has claimed that Granit Xhaka struggles to produce energetic performances for Arsenal in midfield.

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