Arsenal face Cardiff City away in their fourth game of the 2018/19 Premier League season, with Unai Emery’s side looking to build on their first win against West Ham United last weekend.
After a couple of defeats against the big-six clubs that nonetheless showed some signs of progress, Arsenal defeated West Ham 3-1 to get the season going last weekend. Now it’s about keeping that momentum going against Cardiff, who are yet to score a league goal but still have two draws from their opening three games.
The Gunners should have close to their full squad available for the fixture. Sead Kolasinac and Ainsley Maitland-Niles are absent as left-back options, but Nacho Monreal is already first-choice in the position anyway. Carl Jenkinson is also out, but again he was a back up even when he was fit.
Laurent Koscielny is the only guaranteed starter who is still out, although he’s back out on the training pitches working on his recovery at least.
That being said, who will start for Arsenal this time around?
