Aaron Ramsey inspired Arsenal to a three goal victory against his former club.
Here are five stats which stood out...
1) Mathieu Flamini's goal was his first for the Gunners since January 2008 v Newcastle.
2) Arsenal only had two more shots on target than Cardiff (6 to 4), but were lethal, scoring with 50% of them compared to 0%.
3) Between them, Mesut Ozil and Jack Wilshere created the same number of goalscoring chances (6) as the entire Cardiff City team.
4) Mikel Arteta won the midfield battle with Gary Medel, Arteta winning seven tackles compared to Medel's two, and with both making five interceptions each.
5) Olivier Giroud (4) made the same number of defensive clearances as Bacary Sagna.
