Villa Vs Arsenal : Player Ratings

Fabianski – 6
Nothing he could have done to prevent the first goal but should have done better in organising his defence for the 2nd as he was all over the place.

Sagna – 7
Solid and composed, dealt with the Ashley young and Warnock with relative ease. Good outing for the french man

Squillaci – 5
I don’t know what AW saw in him when he paid for him. Shaky performance characterised with his poor clearance that led to the first goal.

Kozzer – 5.5
Just heads above Squid, put in some strong tackles but lost Clark for the 2nd goal along with Song.

Clichy – 6.5
Should have a higher rating bar his hesitation in closing down Clark for the first goal. Solid performance.

Wilshere – 7
Good game and calm in possession, knowing when to hold the ball and when to release the ball, capped it with the winning goal(his first in the league for Arsenal)

Song – 6.5
Not as strong as should be as he allowed the young Brannan dominate play in the second half.

Rosicky – 7.5
Was he Fabregas in disguise?? Ran the show, played from left to right, tackled and assisted the goal. What more can you ask for from the stand in skipper? Renaissance???

Arshavin – 7.5
Wow!!! Energetic, hard-working and good strike for the opener. The real Arsha showed up today. Good game

Nasri – 7.5
Well taken goal and a good performance from the french man especially in the second half when he moved into the middle.

Chamakh – 8
As always a good performance, harried at the defence well, had a header saved then time his run to perfection to slot home the 3rd goal. Bendtner its going to be easier to pass through the eye of a needle than for you to replace him.


Denilson – 5

Gibbs – 5

From Escobar, have a swell day

  1. You should have gone to specsavers

  2. couldnt agree more^

  3. hey Brad, if you have a problem with these ratings, why not make it known? Give you suggestions on what should have been corrected.
    Having a go at the writer is rather lame IMO

  4. Good rating except kozza.i tink he covered wel 4 d useless squillaci

  5. Arshavin deserved 9…he was constantly taking to the players and he was the leader we are all looking for…And for ur question on rosicky…we need goals from him,he great opportunities to score in the 1 st half and missed them all…People constantly say clichy is bad at defending ,but no one appreciates his work rate….one moment he is in the opp box delivering crosses and the next he is defending…he Will do well ,if he has some more cover in his wing…..

  6. Cldnt watch d match.. But it feels good to get bck on track after two defeats.

  7. @ Brad and Shavin : thank u very much. Your comments are well appreciated. Pls check back always.

    @ indian gunner. I agree with you but 9 is a little bit far fetched, he was not that active until he scored and after our 3rd goal he disappeared. As for Clichy…his ratings should have been higher but he was partly at fault for not closing down Clark and then he should have cleard the 2nd goal. Nonetheless it was a rather polished performance. Thank you for ur comments…well apprecaited.

    @ smkyRobbs… Thank God u have us to help out with that

  8. arshavin was my man of the match today. the defence is still shit. d same problem we have always faced is set pieces. dunno wat mr wenger plans on doin bout dat. dey neva close down d shooter. as for nicki, the bench is his startin point. he shd go wit a note book too. cham was on point too. 1 goal and one assist. very impressed wit arshavin was about to take him off my fantasy team but now he stays on. fulham nxt. hopeful for 3 points

  9. Good ratings but in my own opinion, Arshavin was d man of d match, his work rate was high and he really ran d Villa boiz putting so much pressure upfront though wif some *now becoming TM* balloon shots. Must confess Chamakh impressed me today (coming from one who rily aint a big fan)
