But Arsenal were nearly immediately ahead as Mustafi lost his marker, Sol Bamba, at Granit Xhaka's corner to head home powerfully for his first goal since March.

"They are playing minutes each match and today they started", Emery added.

Global retirement following Germany's World Cup exit has also contributed towards a turbulent spell for Ozil but, as Cardiff prepare to host Arsenal on Sunday, Warnock has backed him to turn things around.

A late strike from Alexandre Lacazette gave Arsenal a 3-2 win over Cardiff City on Sunday in Wales.

The Gunners were being held by Cardiff at half-time after Victor Camarasa cancelled out Shkodran Mustafi's early header.

Sunday's encounter was a game most would have expected Cardiff to lose but they will rue the result as an opportunity lost after almost snatching a valuable point.

There were defensive headaches too which came to the fore in first half stoppage-time when Xhaka's poor pass was intercepted, Nacho Monreal failed to execute a simple interception from Joe Bennett's cross and Camarasa spun to find the roof of the Arsenal net.

MD Matteo Guendouzi, 6 - Has started all four league games under Emery and the teenager continues to show promise.

Arsenal made it two wins in a row but had to work hard for all three points when beating Cardiff 3-2 away from home.

Emery opted to start both Lacazette and Aubameyang against Cardiff and the decision paid dividends, with Lacazette providing an assist for his team-mate before scoring the victor.

Gabon global Pierre Aubameyang increased the scoreline for the Gunners in the 62nd minute and it was Lacazette that provided the assist. "In the second half he played a good match".

In Arsene Wenger's final season in charge of the Gunners, they finished a disappointing sixth in the Premier League and will be looking to improve upon that performance this season.

Another awful pass from Cech at the start of the second half put his team under pressure, but Hoilett wasn't able to punish the visiting keeper as he cleared the crossbar from 28 yards out.
