(Sporting Alert) — Arsenal head into Saturday’s Barclays Premier League clash at Cardiff City buzzing with confidence as they seek to end the week with another victory.
Arsenal lead the EPL standings with 28 points, four more than Liverpool and can go seven clear at the top with victory over a Cardiff City that played to a 2-2 draw with champions Manchester United last weekend.
The Gunners have won four of their last five league games and in-form midfielder Aaron Ramsey has warned that the leaders will not be taking it easy as they look to maintain their form heading into the Christmas period.
“We know our form after Christmas has been second to none in the last few seasons,” Cardiff City Academy product Aaron Ramsey was quoted as saying.
“So we are totally focused on putting ourselves in a position where we are there or thereabouts, because we are confident we can kick on in the new year.
“We are hungry to win trophies and win games. That is no different this season to any other, but in the past we’ve got off to bad starts and had to play catch up.”
Besides Ramsey, Arsenal can also look to Olivier Giroud and Mesut Ozil to provide more threat on goal.
