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

On this week’s episode we look back on the 2-0 win over Portsmouth in the FA Cup. There was an assured debut for Pablo Mari, and chances for young players as Mikel Arteta rotated his squad. We chat about the impact of Reiss Nelson, Eddie Nketiah and Gabriel Martinelli in particular; an impressive second half which showed lots of maturity; the things the manager will have been pleased about; and the refereeing of Mike Dean. We then answer questions about Matteo Guendouzi, the amount of central defenders we have and who might go in the summer, whether Nketiah should start ahead of Lacazette, what the future holds for Ainsley Maitland-Niles after Arteta’s comments, the Invincibles remaining invincible, some hashtag fun involving our former Chief Executive 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.
