Unai Emery has warned Arsenal that they must be at their best if they want to get a positive result against Cardiff City in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

The north London side are preparing to travel to Wales as they look to try and make it back to back wins in the Premier League after their 3-1 win over West Ham United in the top flight last weekend.

Arsenal are aiming to challenge for a top-four finish in the Premier League this season after having ended up in sixth place and without a trophy last term under Arsene Wenger.

It has been something of a tricky start to the new campaign for Emery’s side, with Arsenal having lost their first two opening games against Manchester City and Chelsea FC.

The Gunners will now look to string together some positive results as they look to try and challenge for a top-four finish this term.

However, Emery has warned his Arsenal side against underestimating the threat posed by Cardiff City this weekend.

Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports, Emery said: “It’s a different match, but very difficult like each team in the Premier League.

“We are preparing well for the match but the difficulty we will have with their identity and style, means we will need to impose our idea on the pitch.

“It’s not easy because it’s at their stadium. We need to be very concentrated and do our job on the pitch.”

Arsenal have not won the Premier League since 2004 and they have finished outside the top four places in the Premier League in the last two seasons running.
