Arsenal fans delighted with Alexandre Lacazette performance at Cardiff

The only new addition who didn't have a full pre-season was Torreira due to his excursions in Russian Federation, yet 10 minutes after coming on as a substitute for Matteo Guendouzi the combative 22-year-old provided a ideal assist for Alexandre Lacazette to secure a hard fought win at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Lacazette, who had earlier set up Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's goal, restored Arsenal's lead in the 81st minute when he took substitute Lucas Torreira's pass at a wide angle and fired past Sol Bamba and goalkeeper Neil Etheridge.

It is fair to say that the big signing of last summer has not truly lived up to his potential in a Gunners shirt yet, but having impressed in a couple of cameos off the bench in previous matches, he was given a start at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Lacazette has been made to wait for his first start by Unai Emery, but he was picked from the off against Cardiff is loving playing alongside Aubameyang.

"The Chelsea game was hard for him because he missed some chances, but it was nice to play well with him". The manager said, if we do this kind of thing, we can concede a goal. "We know it was going to be hard here, the crowd is superb, so if you give them any chance you can really feel the atmosphere, so we did well to overcome this", Ramsey told Sky Sports.

"The system was good, we worked on it all week". An away win before the worldwide break is just the tonic for a side who only managed one victory on the road in the second half of last season. This season we want to be better away and it was the first game we have won.

"I won't play every week just because of one game". I hope that it will the first of many'.
