Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta believes that Cardiff City will provide "very tough" opposition when the teams meet in the Premier League on Saturday.
Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta has insisted that Cardiff City will be "very tough" opposition when the teams meet in the Premier League this weekend.
The Gunners are currently four points clear at the top of the table following last Saturday's 2-0 win over Southampton.
Arteta now hopes that Arsenal can recover from their midweek victory against Marseille in the Champions League and get a result against the Welsh side at the Cardiff City Stadium.
"Cardiff will be very tough. That's why we need to get back and prepare well for Saturday to make sure we get the points again," the Spaniard told the club's official website.
Cardiff head into the match in 15th place in the table after their recent 2-2 draw with Manchester United.
