Cardiff City vs Arsenal

Arsenal have won one match in three successive Premier League games which came from a team below their rank, albeit, Cardiff City players are yet to score a single goal in three matches.

However, the Gunners are yet to keep a clean sheet, which perhaps is reducing the confidence at the back line.

Arsenal still have similar injury concern as at last week: Ainsley Maitland-Niles is not expected to return has he continues to recover from the small fracture he had in his fibula while Sead Kolasinac still has until October to recover completely from a knee injury.

Laurent Koscielny is still aiming to return to training until November owing to his Right Achilles tendon repair and Carl Jenkinson will still watch from the stand as he continues to recover from the momentous sprain to his right ankle until either October or November.

If there is any other area the Gunners are lacking, it should be their away form as they have only won twice in 12 Premier League games.

Gunnarsson and Mendez-Laing will be absent for Neil Warnock side, while Junior Hoilett is a doubt as the Bluebirds manager is still accessing the Canadian forward until tomorrow.

If Cardiff City fail to get any point in this game, it will mark their poorest points start to a season over the first four games since 2005-2006 when they noted one win and three losses.

Probable Line-up

Cardiff: Etheridge, Ecuele Manga, Morrison, Bamba, Bennett, Ralls, Paterson, Camarasa, Arter, Murphy, Zohore.

Arsenal: Czech, Bellerin, Sokratis, Mustafi, Monreal, Guendouzi, Xhaka, Ramsey, Mikhitaryan, Iwobi, Aubamayang.
