Player Ratings: Arsenal 3-2 Aston Villa:
2 RVP Penalty goal and Theo's fluke Goal overturn the tides of Aston Villa last night which helped us to advance to the next round
Lukasz Fabianski - 5
-It was not his day and unfortunate that his first 'save' from Bent rebounded straight back to the striker. We cant blame him though Laurent Koscielny - 7.5
-Best Performer for Arsenal this season and he was comfortably out-jumped by Dunne for Villa's goal bur once again looked the most composed and dominant of Arsenal's defenders. Remember he won us the second penalty with his forward moves.
Per Mertesacker - 5
-Worst performance in 1st half, He was caught well out of position during 1st half. but He did played a decent game in the 2nd.
Thomas Vermaelen - 6.5
-He was attacking and a good forward move through the flank. A decent game but he was little jumpy at times in defense
Francis Coquelin - 6
-A promising return from his hamstring injury but he needs to work on his position as he was in trouble whenever Agbonlahor put his foot on the accelerator.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - 7.5
-He did had a good game but He made quite few wrong decision like when to pass or shoot. He was composed and he did had a good possession of the ball. Definitely a guy to look for the future
Aaron Ramsey - 7.5
-Poor in 1st half but damn good in 2nd. He won the first penalty with his fine run. he provided an excellent and intelligent link between midfield and attack. But he needs to work on his finishing though.
Alexandre Song - 6.5
-Had a good defensive play in the central midfield as he usual goes for attack. He provided the ramsey with his pass which helped us to get a penalty.
Tomas Rosicky - 6
-Some positives form his performance. He is getting fitter but slow pace denies him the penetration and he had a few weak shot. Later He was substituted by Mikel Arteta
Theo Walcott - 6.5
-Good to see him score even though it was a fluke. He had fair game and He can do better. And again Poor Crosses and penetration.
Robin van Persie - 8
-Star performer for Arsenal. Showed great composure to score two penalties and he outplayed GIVEN on both the occasion. In short He played the captain knock
