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

On this episode of the Arsecast Extra we discuss the 2-1 win over Sheffield United on Sunday, in which two excellent second half goals helped us to three points against a difficult side. We touch on the introduction of Nicolas Pepe and the change in shape as a key factor in the win, a first Emirates goal for Bukayo Saka, the positives we should take from this game despite clear room for improvement, and where it leaves us in the table after the first four games. Then, as it’s transfer deadline day, we deal with a lot of listener questions about our business during this window. Has Mikel Arteta been backed properly? Should the owners do more to invest in the team? Has Edu convinced in his new role? How much has past spending hindered us this summer? And if there are no arrivals, could Saka be the addition to midfield that we need? All that, 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.
