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

In this episode we look back on the 1-0 defeat to Man City on Sunday. Losing to a team as good as that isn’t a surprise, but we explore the sense of frustration afterwards and what else might be informing it. We chat about the team selection, Mikel Arteta’s changes, and the early lapse in concentration which cost us the goal that won City the game. Also on the agenda: substitutes, why games against Man City are so weird, and a tired looking Kieran Tierney, plus lots of listener questions about squad rotation, Bukayo Saka playing 90 minutes again, Gabriel Martinelli, Pep’s post-game comments, the importance of the Benfica game on Thursday 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.
