And for not for the first time this season we fail to hang onto a lead going into injury time.
In a very open game we somehow managed to find our self 2-0 up after villa had hit the woodwork 3 times. At 2-0 Van Persie hit the post to make it 3-0 to Arsenal and that was the key moment of the game.
Villa then get 1 back and its all set up for a grandstand finish and we all knew what was coming. in the 92min Zat Knight drive pass Almunia and its 1pts and a draw for the 2nd game in a row.
Wenger now must get the cheque book out and sign some quality players or we risk finishing out of the top 4 for the first time under leboss.
Almunia 6.5 ( Made 1 good save,But almost gifted Villa a goal but was saved magnificently by Sagna )
Silvestre 7.0 ( Did ok, Not as good going forward as Clichy )
Toure 7.0 ( Was pretty solid on his return )
Gallas 6.0 ( For most of the game he was outstanding and then went to ground and gifted Villa a pen )
Sagna 9.0 ( Outstanding. Marking the dangerous Young out of the game and saved the team with a amazing clearance off the line )
Song 5.5 ( Gave the ball away countless times before coming off injured )
Denilson 8.0 ( His best game for a long time. Better in the middle then on the wings, But we all knew that )
Diaby 7.5 ( Great goal, A few good runs and showed great pace )
Van Persie 7.5 ( Played well but he is not a lone striker )
Nasri 6.0 ( Not his best game )
Eboue 7.5 ( Set up the 2nd goal and played well )
Subs, Ramsey 6.5 – Clichy 6.5
