Cardiff City vs Arsenal
2018/19 English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 1st September 2018
Kick-off at 13:30 UK/ 14:30 CET
Venue: Cardiff City Stadium.
Cardiff will be aiming for their first win since their return to the English top flight football as they welcome Arsenal on Sunday.
Cardiff were among the relegation favorites this season and they haven’t proved the punters otherwise. They have continued their poor form in the season with a 3-1 home loss to Norwich City in the League Cup on Tuesday.
The Bluebirds kicked off the season with a 2-0 defeat away at Bournemouth and they failed to put a single test to the opposition’s goal. The defeat was followed up with 2 goalless draws against Newcastle United and Huddersfield Town.
Cardiff have 2 points at the moment but they are yet to score a Premier League goal this season. The thought that they have played 3 bottom half teams and are this poor in the games is appalling. It could be a very miserable season for Cardiff City and their fans.
Arsenal began their new Premier League life without Wenger in an unconvincing way. Unai Emery’s men lost to Manchester City and Chelsea in the opening 2 games but got a 3-1 win over West Ham.
To be fair, the Gunners were out of luck against Chelsea but renewed their confidence in their second London derby last week. The now have a relief of easier fixture than the way they started the season with back to back games against 2 top six sides.

Cardiff City vs Arsenal: Prediction
Arsenal are heavy favorites for this clash without any argument and we are giving them our full support.
Cardiff have conceded just 2 goals this season buy have failed to score in any of their 3 games. They haven’t scored against Arsenal since 2006 and we don’t expect them to score in this game. Arsenal win to Nil will be a great deal
