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

On this week’s show we enjoy the 4-0 win over Newcastle, a win which has felt a long time coming because it has been a long time coming. We discuss Mikel Arteta’s team selection, with Eddie Nketiah and Dani Ceballos surprise starters; the improved second half after a difficult first; Nicolas Pepe’s best game for the club; the continued development of Bukayo Saka; long overdue goals for Ozil and Lacazette; and the team showing the benefits of the warm weather training camp. As well as that we answer questions about Matteo Guendouzi’s absence from the squad, Arteta’s penchant for Shkodran Mustafi, Saka’s contractual situation, David Luiz’s nose antics, and there’s a new rendition of the magpie’s jingle having beaten said magpies so comprehensively.

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.
