After missing Cardiff City's first four matches, Aron Gunnarsson might face one more match on the shelf before getting his long-awaited return to the Premier League with Cardiff City.

It has been since the 2013-14 campaign that Aron Gunnarsson was in the Premier League with Cardiff City (or anyone else). The Iceland international has been out for the first month of the season and was expected back after the international break but in his press conference ahead of the Chelsea match, Neil Warnock was not definitive that Gunnarsson would be available.

Cardiff City forward Josh Murphy is questionable for the Bluebirds visit to Stamford Bridge on Saturday due to a hamstring complaint.

Presumably Neil Warnock is going to be fighting a holding action against the far-more-talented Blues at Stamford Bridge so the presence of a fast forward like Murphy would be valuable if he can overcome his hamstring issue in time to play. You could certainly see the strategy being to unleash Murphy with long balls on the counterattack hoping to either catch the Blues out or force set pieces where Sean Morrison and Cardiff City's other big bruisers might have an advantage.

Victor Camarasa scored Cardiff City's first goal of the season but they couldn't hold on as Arsenal won 3-2 early on Sunday.

Cardiff City didn't win or even pick up a point but there were positive signs as they finally got on the score sheet. That they could play toe-to-toe with Arsenal in a free-flowing match could point to some points in future matches. They won't be high scoring but at least there are some goals in the side as Sean Morrison was integral in creating chances via headers into the box.

Junior Hoilett's status is uncertain ahead of Cardiff City's match against Arsenal on Sunday.

The Canadian international is nursing a groin injury and it won't be until the last minute until his status for the match is determined. Given Cardiff City's issues scoring, or even getting good shots on target, there is little reason to take any risks with Hoilett if you're evaluating his status for fantasy purposes.

On the back of penalty saves in consecutive weeks and a clean sheet added last week, Neil Etheridge again notched a clean sheet for the Bluebirds in their nil-nil draw at Huddersfield Town.

The Bluebirds only conceded a single shot on target so the clean sheet is hardly down to Etheridge alone but managers looking for a bargain (second) goalkeeper who may still be available on waivers (or inexpensively in salary cap formats) would do well to consider Etheridge. Things do get significantly tougher though with Arsenal, @Chelsea, and Manchester City the team's next three opponents. Maybe pick him up and stash him away until late September.

Junior Hoilett has failed to recover from the groin strain that caused his early exit against Newcastle in Week two ruling him out of the game against Huddersfield Town.

These are the matches that the Bluebirds need to win. Huddersfield Town have looked poor thus far this season. The Bluebirds are limited offensively to say the least but an opportunistic goal from a Premier League veteran like Hoilett could provide a massive boost for a club whose season will be made or broken by their ability to grind out 1-0 wins against the clubs they will presumably be fighting in the relegation zone.

Harry Arter is likely to make his Cardiff City debut against Newcastle United this Saturday after being ineligible to play against his parent club Bournemouth in Week 1.

The Bluebirds need an injection going forward if they have any hope of surviving the drop. Yes, it is early to make season-long predictions but a quick look at the squad reveals a decided lack of goals even at the Championship level, let alone the Premier League. Harry Arter is certainly not a star but every little bit of Premier League experience will help the cause.

Cardiff City were left disappointed on the south coast following their opening day defeat at the hands of AFC Bournemouth.

Bobby Reid was the only summer signing to start for the Bluebirds with Alex Smithies, Greg Cunningham, Josh Murphy and Victor Camarasa all named on the bench. But, it was the absence of Kenneth Zohore from the matchday squad which caused the biggest stir after the striker failed to overcome a minor groin issue. "I thought he was going to be fit on Friday, but he just felt it a little bit," Neil Warnock confirmed following the 2-0 defeat. "I hope [he’ll be fit for next weekend] but you don't know with injuries." However, one player who will miss out [against Newcastle] is midfielder Aron Gunnarsson as he continues his recovery from a niggling knee problem. "He will probably be a couple of weeks. We're building him up, so he doesn't come back and break down again. There's no need to rush him now because we've got Harry Arter coming in."

Deadline day arrival Harry Arter will not feature for Cardiff City on Saturday as the return to the Premier League.

Arter could see a lot of usage over the course of the season as one of the Bluebirds' few experienced Premier League campaigners. He won't get a chance to show off what he can bring in Week 1 due to the lateness of his arrival but he will be one to watch beyond that as Neil Warnock will have to find some attacking impetus somewhere and Arter could be leaned on more heavily than he has been in previous Premier League seasons.
Aug 10 - 12:15 PM

Harry Arter has completed a loan move to Cardiff City for the 2018/19 season.

The Republic of Ireland international midfielder will be hoping that the move will reignite his career after he lost his starting place at Bournemouth last season to England's up and coming star Lewis Cook. Reports suggest that there is no recall clause for Arter's parent club to exercise during the season, whilst there is also apparently no buy-option for Neil Warnock's side. Arter had been quoted as saying that he was working hard to win back his place at the Cherries, but the arrival of Jefferson Lerma for a club record fee was probably the last straw.

Harry Arter and Adam Smith are Bournemouth's main absentees ahead of their side's south coast derby clash with Southampton on Saturday.

The Republic of Ireland midfielder has picked up an Achilles problem and will not feature. Eddie Howe also revealed that Adam Smith's recovery from injury is coming along better than expected. There were initial fears that the right-back's injury could have been over, but now Howe has signalled that he could return next week.
Apr 27 - 11:22 AM

Bournemouth midfielder Harry Arter says he is "100% committed" to Bournemouth evn though he has lost his place in the starting line-up at the Vitality Stadium.

Having consistently started early on this term, the Republic of Ireland international now finds himself warming the bench more often than not. In the last dozen PL games, he has featured just 3 times, starting two of those. In spite of persistent transfer rumours in January, Eddie Howe insisted the player would not be departing Dean Court and Arter has reiterated his firm dedication to the Cherries' cause: "My most important job between now and the end of the season is to work as hard as I can to get myself back in the team." The 28 year old did explain that he would have to have a "discussion" about leaving the club if he still wasn't playing come the end of the season, but for now he's focused on doing all he can so that Eddie Howe selects him to do his part.
Feb 9 - 8:20 AM

Bournemouth have rewarded Harry Arter for some fine performances last season with a new four year contract.

Arter said that the decision to stay on the south coast until 2021 was a "pretty easy" one given that the club matches his ambitions. He said: "The team has been successful over the past few years and you want to be part of somewhere that is continually progressing. I just want to improve all the time and it’s nice to be part of a squad which is trying to do that, too." Arter has been at Dean Court since 2010 when he arrived from non-league Woking. He has grown in stature along with the team, participating in a climb from League One to the Premier League in that period, playing 239 times and scoring on 28 occasions. Eddie Howe was ecstatic to have Arter commit his future: "He is a real winner and has been at the heart of most of the good things that have happened on the pitch... it’s great news that he has committed his future to the club."

Harry Arter could miss the final game of the season through injury but teammate Andrew Surman is back in contention after recovering from a knee problem.

Arter has been battling an ongoing Achilles and ankle issue for the past few weeks and suffered another setback against Burnley when he was forced off with a dead leg. While none of his injuries are thought to be serious, Sunday may come too soon for the Republic of Ireland international. Surman on the other hand, is ready, after missing almost eight weeks due to a twisted knee. Eddie Howe confirmed the 30-year-old will be in his thoughts, although he may not be ready to start at Leicester. Lewis Cook is away on international duty [England U20s World Cup] and Bournemouth will be forced into at least one change. Dan Gosling is favourite to come into the side following his recovery from a calf strain and Benik Afobe [hamstring], who "continues to improve," has an outside chance of making the squad. Callum Wilson, Adam Federici and Rhoys Wiggins [all knee] remain long-term absentees.

Southampton were fortunate to come away with a point from their south coast derby against Bournemouth.

Both teams had their periods of dominance, with the Saints in control early on. Tadic missed two early chances, one of which was set up by Jay Rodriguez who started his first game since February with Gabbiadini out injured. JRod had chances himself too soon after, one of which ruffled Boruc's net but was adjudged to be offside. Surman had the Cherries' best chance of the half, but Surman's shot was cleared off the line by Davis. In the second half, Afobe missed a sitter after good work by King, who was hooked early in favour of Wilshere much to fantasy managers' dismay. The Cherries had a series off chances go awry in quick succession from Smith, Pugh, and Gosling before Arter slipped taking his penalty which was won softly by Fraser. The Cherries showed more desire but neither side deserved to lose overall.
