Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @gunnerblog.
In this episode we discuss the 2-1 defeat to Brighton on Saturday. We start with Granit Xhaka’s selection at left-back, how it impacted the team, and what it means for Nuno Tavares. We chat about the goals we conceded, the lacklustre performance when there was supposed to be a reaction, some poor decision making, and how a late flurry wasn’t enough to prevent a truly disheartening result. There’s also stuff on Alexandre Lacazette and the need for a change up front, as well as questions about a shift in formation, keeping fringe players more involved, VAR, our top four chances and Mikel Arteta, great rivalries and lots more.
