Welcome to another Arsecast Extra, the Arsenal podcast, with myself and James from @gunnerblog.
In this episode we look back at the 1-0 win over Everton on Sunday. We chat about Arsenal’s control of this game (and others this season), and whether it comes at a cost to our attacking play. We then discuss the Gabriel Martinelli disallowed goal, Fabio Vieira’s selection in midfield, the set-piece play and finish from Leandro Trossard which won the game, before moving on to the big talking point – David Raya starting over Aaron Ramsdale. Mikel Arteta’s post-game comments about that decision were fascinating – are we about to see a new era of goalkeeping rotation, or was this simply a changing of the guard. Then there are listener questions about Declan Rice’s influence, hoodoo games we’d like to win, Eddie Nketiah/Gabriel Jesus and the centre-forward role, winning lots of corners, and loads 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.
