THE PREDICTION

Cardiff are clearly intent on keeping all of their matches tight and aiming for a clean sheet and snatching a goal from a sporadic counter attack or set piece. They remain without a goal in their opening three matches and it seems unlikely they can hold out this Arsenal team for 90 minutes.
