Shkodran Mustafi opened the scoring against Neil Warnock’s side after 11 minutes on Sunday, but Cardiff City hit back to equalise on the stroke of half-time through Victor Camarasa.
Aubameyang then took centre stage by firing in a sublime curling effort to give Arsenal the lead once again, before Cardiff managed to equalise for a second time through Danny Ward.
However, Lacazette spared Emery’s blushes with a late strike to win the game, rifling home an unstoppable strike from a tight angle with ten minutes remaining.
Former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp hailed Emery’s decision to play the two strikers together post-match, stating that the team is more effective when they both feature.
He told the Daily Mail: “I felt last week that Arsenal would be better served playing Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang up front. They did so against Cardiff… and got instant results with a 3-2 win.”
After losing their opening two games against Manchester City and Chelsea, Arsenal have bounced back quickly with back-to-back wins against West Ham and Cardiff, with the players seemingly beginning to regain their confidence after a difficult start.
After the international break, Newcastle United await at St James’ Park and supporters will hope that Emery’s men continue to improve whilst securing another important three points.
