Alexandre Lacazette scored the victor as Arsenal made it back-to-back Premier League victories with a 3-2 success away to Cardiff City on Sunday afternoon.

Lacazette scored the winning goal for Arsenal nine minutes from time.

Gabon worldwide Pierre Aubameyang increased the scoreline for the Gunners in the 62nd minute and it was Lacazette that provided the assist.

The Welsh side may not have scored even one goal in their three games so far but they have had two 0-0 draws to show for it, and would you believe that, including their Championship games last season, they have lost just one of their last ten home League games.

Some fans turned on Granit Xhaka after his error nearly cost Arsenal during our thrilling 3-2 victory over Watford at Vicarage Road this afternoon. Today was no different, his distribution was poor and his goalkeeping for the first goal could have been much better.

His continuous exclusion from the starting eleven has therefore been a surprise to many as he has been tipped to provide the steel cover for the defence, a quality that has been missing for Arsenal in the past years. He had been struggling for the first three games and this goal will do just enough to boost his confidence. Petr Cech also had a nightmare with the ball at his feet and if Unai Emery is intent on playing the ball out from the back it may be time for Bernd Leno.

The former Germany global made his return to the starting line-up this afternoon following his absence from Arsenal's 3-1 home victory against Premier League strugglers West Ham United.
