Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @gunnerblog.
In this episode, we discuss the 4-1 defeat to Man City on Tuesday night. We chat about the performance levels of both sides, the way City caused us problems to which we had little answer – especially in the first half when Aaron Ramsdale kept the scoreline respectable. Should Mikel Arteta have done something different tactically, if not from the start but at the break? There’s discussion of the goals, the second just before the break deserves some time because of the VAR intervention, and we talk about where this leaves us after what has been a good season so far. We have questions about Leandro Trossard, how the manager can lift his troops, the mindset for the last five games, midfield recruitment and lots more – including an update on the Arseblog donation to the Arsenal Foundation fundraiser.
