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

In this episode we look back at the frustrating 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace at the Emirates on Thursday. We discuss the absence of Kieran Tierney, the number of high touch players whose desire to be on the ball plays into the hands of an organised opposition, a lack of goal threat and a reality check after the last couple of games. Nevertheless, a clean sheet and the return of Thomas Partey were positives. We then answer listener questions about what we need to do at left-back if/when Tierney is absent, the news of an upcoming appointment at executive level, priorities in the transfer window this month, what exactly we’re trying to do with set-pieces, and lots more, including the long-awaited return of Magpie Facts!
