Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @gunnerblog.
In this episode, we discuss the 1-0 win over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Monday night. We begin by talking about the continued absence of Gabriel from the starting line-up, and wonder if the tactical rationale stacks up 100%. Then we move onto the game itself, Arsenal’s first half chances, winning the penalty in the second half, and then the dismissal of Takehiro Tomiyasu – based around perceived time-wasting rules, and a ludicrous second yellow card. The defensive rearguard action was enjoyable in the end but could we have had more control? We also answer listener questions about Kai Havertz’s role, a possible reintegration for Nicolas Pepe, Leandro Trossard’s minimal role so far this season, Declan Rice, selling players, and lots more.
