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

On this week’s episode we discuss the 1-0 win over West Ham at the Emirates on Saturday. A good result, but not a great performance. Is that something that should concern us at this point, or is it part of the slow process of rebuilding under Mikel Arteta. We chat about wins v performance in the context of criticism aimed at Unai Emery for similar; the intervention of VAR in this game which ruled-in Lacazette’s originally ruled-out winner; and talk about the need for better attacking balance on the right-hand side. We then take listener questions about the Man City game on Wednesday, our predictions for the rest of the Premier League season, the impact on football of COVID-19/Corona Virus as games are being played behind closed doors elsewhere, and lots more.
