[Match Highlights] Cardiff City 2-3 Arsenal - All The Goals & Best Bits

At times, Ozil glided through the game, ghosting in behind Arsenal's chief attacking threats, and a midfield combination with Aaron Ramsey largely worked well.

Xhaka has split opinion among fans ever since arriving in a big-money deal from Borussia Mönchengladbach in 2016 but it seems a growing number are now exhausted of the Swiss international's errors.

A juxtaposition of managerial styles clashing together at the Cardiff City Stadium - an ever-feisty Neil Warnock versus a suave Emery - promised an interesting match between the two Premier League sides.

Cardiff again came from behind to level in the 70th minute, however, with Danny Ward angling a brilliant header into the bottom corner after Morrison had made first contact.

Here are five things we learnt from Arsenal's 3-2 victory against Cardiff City.

The Gunners recorded their first Premier League win of the season last weekend when seeing off West Ham United and boss Unai Emery will want to see his men collect another three points today.

MD Aaron Ramsey, 7 - was sacked up from the word go against his former side and nearly scored on nine minutes from a clever corner routine.

Cardiff's high press made it an uncomfortable start for Petr Cech between the Arsenal sticks, with the experienced goalkeeper nearly caught out on a couple of occasions inside his own box.

The request contrasts with the White House, which raised its flags back to full staff on Monday after lowering them on Sunday. McCain hit back after a tape of Trump making vile comments about women - the "grab 'em by the p***y" scandal - emerged.

Franklin's hometown team sprinkled the titles of some of her greatest hits throughout their game notes as their own way of honoring arguably the greatest singer of all time . "She did incredible music, incredible singer", he continued.

But Arsenal were nearly immediately ahead as Mustafi lost his marker, Sol Bamba, at Granit Xhaka's corner to head home powerfully for his first goal since March.

Unai Emery's side looked impressive in the first half and went ahead through Shkodran Mustafi on 11 minutes, but the Bluebirds replied just before half-time with an equaliser from Víctor Camarasa. In fact, Xhaka's error lead to Cardiff's first goal.

Opting to start the two strikers alongside each other, Aubameyang and Lacazette were given the opportunity to lead the line from the off.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is yet to find the net this term, and this match would be a good time to start.

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

While noting that he is pleased with all his players who have all been working hard in the past few weeks, the Spanish manager pointed at Torreira as an exciting player and a good prospect.

And just three weeks into the new season, Wenger's replacement as Gunners manager has already discovered that getting the best out of Ozil could prove to be no easy task.
