Arsenal’s defeat to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United side means that the gunners will now focus on finishing in the Premier League top four and they today face Cardiff City at the Emirates Stadium.
The visitors are shady as seen in recent matches but the home side must rise up and put on a good performance because the Arsenal fans were disappointed on Friday when they lost to Manchester United.
This sees Arsenal entertain Cardiff City at home with lots of expectations. On this note, we eradicate the three significant things to expect as Arsenal face Cardiff at Emirates
Massive Response for Arsenal
Arsenal’s Unai Emery will definitely be hoping for a better outing against the visiting Cardiff side. This will be on the show as both side face-off against each other in the midweek Premier League fixture.
A turn around is widely expected as all Arsenal supporters who turned out in mass to watch the FA Cup clash against Manchester United were all disappointed with a 1-3 defeat at home
Further goals from Aubameyang
Arsenal’s season illumination Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be expected to lead the line once again for Unai Emery and his side in the fixture. Following the striker’s goalscoring exploits, we expect further net-busting from him as he’s proved capable, time and time this season.
This also sees his partnership with Lacazette gain ascendancy as we hope to see Aubameyang score against Cardiff.
Unai Emery’s Tactical Modification
The former PSG manager might have lost to Manchester United arguably on the tactical ground as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made better of this adjustment than him in the weekend clash.
The Cardiff City fixture presents an opportunity for Unai Emery to make a tactical evaluation on what went wrong as no error will be condoned in this match.
This leaves many hoping to see a better Arsenal side whose defeat should aid the manager is correcting his side weakness as they do battle with the visitor.
