❓ How It happened: Cardiff’s hunt for their first Premier League win continues as a late Alexandre Lacazette winner secured three points for Arsenal in a very exciting encounter in Wales. Cardiff, who had not managed a goal in the Premier League going into the game gave the Gunners all they could handle almost stealing a much-needed point. At halftime the match was tied, but in the 62nd Aubameyang curled a beauty past the keeper making the score 2-1. Eight minutes later, Ward scored a header past Cech tying the game up before the winner was eventually scored.
