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

In this episode James and I discuss the second consecutive defeat of the season after we went down 2-0 to Chelsea at the Emirates. What is expectation versus reality? Even with players missing, should we have seen better from Mikel Arteta and his team? We analyse the goals, the defensive lapses, chat about not going with a back three, why we didn’t react quickly enough to Chelsea’s threat, Lukaku v Mari and there’s an existential Granit Xhaka question from the stands of the stadium itself. Then we answer listener questions about a potential trolley dash v2 if we lose badly to Man City, Arteta’s future, why we appear to have moved away from playing out from the back, the impact of Covid-19 on us and how it might affect the Premier League as a whole, Willian’s social media likes and lots more.
