Petr Cech of Arsenal gifted the ball to Ward in the same fashion but the Cardiff forward blasted over when scoring looked easier.
The striking duo of Aubameyang and Lacazette are beginning to yield good results as both scored two good goals yesterday as Arsenal held off the stubborn Cardiff away at South Wales.
Arsenal may have managed two straight wins, the same criminal defending that characterized the reigns of Arsene Wenger remains evident, the two goals conceded against Cardiff were horrendous and avoidable; no one wins anything with such defending.
The new cool is playing out from the back, but when you have high pressing oppositions who won’t let you stay on the ball, you become vulnerable, Chelsea were stretched by Bournemouth, had the south coast club been more efficient in front of goal, they probably would have gotten something out of the game.
Elsewhere, playing from the back helped Watford to close down Spurs, while the visitors were exchanging passes at the back, Holebas and Janmaat gave nothing away, making it hard for Spurs to come upfield.
Manchester City needs no introduction in this regard, they are the kings, trying to match them will be interesting for Liverpool and Chelsea… We’re all waiting for those fixtures to pitch them against each other.
