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
