Arsenal will be looking to arrogance back from their defeat to Man United in the 4th round of the FA Cup when they welcome Cardiff City to the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League on Tuesday night. The Gunners bowed out of the FA Cup with a 3-1 home loss to Man United, but till sit above the Red Devils in the PL table on goal difference and are just 3 points off 4th-placed Chelsea entering Week-24 in England's top flight. Arsenal Laurent Koscielny celebrates scoring Arsenal's 2nd goal against Chelsea in the Premier League on January 19, 2 0 1 9. It is so much difficult to judge what type of this season Arsenal are having under Unai Emery. There have been plenty of positive signs for the Gunners, but a number of their issues were on display against Man United in the FA Cup. Indeed, the Red Devils exploited Arsenal's full defensive concerns at the Emirates Stadium and the defeat means that the capital outfit is only realistically fighting for one trophy-the Europa League this season. Emery's team are very much in the mix for the top 4 in the PL at this stage, however, with a total of 44 points from 23 matches leaving them in 5th, just 3 points off 4th placed Chelsea.
Man United in 6th are level on points with Arsenal through and a very bad result on Tuesday could see the Gunners drop down to 6th and potentially leave them 6 points off the Champions League spots, which would be more of a worry. Arsenal's home form in the PL has been strong in this season, however, winning 9 of their 12 matches and losing just once. They were captivating in their 2-0 success over Chelsea on January 19 and are the overwhelming favorites to defeated Cardiff City at the Emirates Stadium this week. Emery's side will then travel to Man City and Huddersfield Town in their next two PL matches, before visiting BATE for the 1st leg of their Europa League knockout match on February 14. Alexandre and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have both been impressive for the Gunners in this season and there is no query that their attack is one of the best in the PL. There have once again been issues defensively, however, and Emery is recently finding it difficult to pick a 1st-choice back four due to a number of injuries.

Cardiff City: This is a game that will be played with weighty hearts. This was supposed to be the 1st game for new signing Sala, the striker for Nantes. But Emiliano Sala has been the central point of a tragic story. Last weekend, the short plane he was on went missing with the English Channel after he left Nantes in France to head to Wales.
