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

On this week’s show discuss the 2-1 win over West Ham in which the result was much better than the performance. We talk about Mikel Arteta pulling no punches about that after the game, why Kieran Tierney being so good has caused a bit of a problem, the contribution of Bukayo Saka, the need for midfield reinforcement even if Xhaka and Ceballos played their parts in the win, as well as some of the Premier League controversy over the weekend regarding handball and penalties. We then answer listener questions about the Carabao Cup team for Wednesday, whether Lucas Torreira going to Atletico Madrid should open the door for Thomas Partey’s arrival, Gabriel’s role in defence, Bernd Leno and Emi Martinez comparisons, Alexandre Lacazette’s contract/future, 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.
