7 Straight Wins, We Ballin’ : The Player Ratings.

Szczesny (6) – Had little to do all game. Did well when called upon.

Djourou (7) – A few scary moments. Other than that, a credible performance.

Vermaelen (8) – Solid game. Stood up to everything the Villa attack could muster. Helped up front when he could.

Sagna (8) – Did his usual.

Gibbs (8) – Good going forward as shown by the goal, but a bit suspect in defence today. Gervinho had to bail him out a few times.

Arteta (8) – Kept things ticking in the middle, a couple of attempts on target, and got his goal with a phenomenal strike from a freekick.

Song (8) – Did his job well, guilty of holding on to the ball for too long. Amazing through pass for the second goal.

Rosicky (7.5) – Continued his resurgence with an assuring performance. A joy to see him in such good form.

Walcott (8.5) – Good performance, great first touch and wonderful composure to get his goal.

Gervinho (7) – Better performance. Looked lively, got an assist.

Van Persie (7) – Started well but could not get a goal. Cut a frustrated figure late on, he’s surely had better days.

SUBSTITUTES

Santos (6) – Almost gave a goal away with his first touch. Settled well in the following minutes. Great to have him back.

Ramsey (6) – Came on with a fresh pair of legs. Added more bite to the midfield.

The Ox (6) – Good cameo. Picked up from where Theo left off.

There you have it guys! 7th straight win gives us a firm grip on 3rd place.

3 points ahead of Sp*ds, 8 ahead of Chelski. Not a bad time to be a gooner, eh?
