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

This week it’s a very goodly morning as we enjoy and recap the 2-0 win over Manchester United yesterday. They had their chances but a brilliant display from Bernd Leno kept them at bay, along with a hugely committed and defensively focused team performance. We chat about Granit Xhaka’s opening goal, Leno’s heroics, Aaron Ramsey’s midfield role and, of course, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s penalty which will hopefully lift the dark clouds off him after a difficult week. We also discuss the implications of this result in the top four chase after a weekend in which those around us have faltered, before listener questions about our away games on the run-in, Xhaka’s performance yesterday and where he is in the grand scheme of things, Sead Kolasinac, how to approach the Europa League game on Thursday, pitch invaders and lots more.
