Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @gunnerblog.

On this week’s show, why has losing a game almost everyone expected us to lose caused such an outpouring of angst? We delve into the 3-1 defeat to Man City and the fan reaction, as well as Unai Emery’s approach to the game, the formation, a relatively good first half and a dismal second, and how the defensive frailties that have caused so many problems this season played a part in the result. There’s discussion of Stephan Lichtsteiner and Shkodran Mustafi, questions about Emery’s performance and whether this is about right for us this season, Alex Iwobi and his role in the team, Dinos Mavropanos and lots more.

Remember, you can send us questions via which we’ll try and get to each week. Send them to either @arseblog or @Gunnerblog (or both) using the hashtag #arsecastextra. Best to send them Monday morning so they get noticed more easily.
