After facing worst defeat of the season, Arsenal will look to heal themselves again as they will face Cardiff City on Tuesday night at Emirates Stadium in the Premier League.
Indeed Arsenal has shown plenty of positive signs for the Gunners, but quite a lot issues did arise when they faced United. Although they are still above Red Devils in point difference a defeat on Tuesday can cost them big as they fall down to the sixth position, which would be more of a concern. If this wasn’t enough then injuries have added another reason for the Gunners to worry as Laurent Koscielny and Sokratis are both injured after the Friday clash. Rob Holding and Hector Bellerin are already facing knee-injury and both Koscielny and Sokratis will definitely miss the clash with Cardiff.
While Cardiff City has already faced a huge loss after a plane carrying newly-signed Emiliano Sala went missing. This news definitely over-shadowed the big clash, but Cardiff is expected to play with full potential. Although they managed to get only win out of seven matches and their last defeat against Newcastle United have left them at the 18th position in the table. Still, their defence strategy can cause a lot of problems to the injured Arsenal on Tuesday night.
Arsenal: Leno; Xhaka, Mustafi, Monreal; Maitland-Niles, Guendouzi, Torreira, Iwobi; Ramsey; Lacazette, Aubameyang.
Cardiff: Etheridge; Peltier, Bamba, Manga, Bennett; Mendez-Laing, Arter, Camarasa, Ralls, Hoilett; Niasse.
My PlayerzPot XI:
Arsenal has always been impressive at their home ground and this time it calls for a 3-point lead on the board for the Gunners.
