Cardiff have not lost in six away games, winning two and drawing four, though they have only kept one clean sheet during this run. 

Arsenal must do without the injured Emmanuel Adebayor and suspended Emmanuel Eboue, whilst Michael Chopra is cup-tied for a Cardiff side that will be without goalkeeper Peter Enckelman through injury.
