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

On this week’s show we discuss the 1-1 draw at Old Trafford which, in isolation, isn’t a bad result but in the context of this season and the needs of this team feels a bit bad. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s goal again highlighted his importance to the team, and in Guendouzi, Saka, Leno and Chambers, there were positives. But Unai Emery’s approach remains under the spotlight, the performance was insipid, and his brand of football is hard to connect with. We chat about all that, as well as answering listener questions about Nicolas Pepe’s early struggles, Ozil’s absence, the captaincy, how to reshape midfield and 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.
