https://i2.wp.com/d.yimg.com/eur.yimg.com/ng/sp/p5/20081221/18/1154103812.jpg

Manuel Almunia (7): A commanding game. Great at rushing out to deny Liverpool on the long ball, good kicking and made a fine save from Kuyt.

Bakary Sagna (7): Supported the attack well on the right hand side and had the measure of Riera and Insua for the most part. yellow card

Johan Djourou (6): Troubled by the long ball behind but anything in front he dealt with well.

William Gallas (6): Was the better of the two defenders reading the game well but the long ball was still a problem.

Gael Clichy (6): Started the game well with some good blocks though high balls towards his side became an occurrence.

Denilson (7): Nice touches early on the right flank and was composed in the centre in the second.

Cesc Fabregas (6): Was dictating the play for Arsenal early in the first half especially but faded as Liverpool got themselves back in. Injured and Subbed >46 Diaby

Alex Song (7): Shielded the defence well in the first half while in an advancing role in the second looked composed but lacking in dynamism.

Samir Nasri (7): Set up the first goal with a delightful long pass and looked dangerous when he attacked. Subbed > 90+1 Eboue.

Emmanuel Adebayor (5): Started the game well but his sending off changed the game for Arsenal. Maybe was a bit harsh but those are the rules.  yellow card red card

Robin Van Persie (8)*: Commited and determined capped off by a great goal. Lacked real support as a result of the red card.  yellow card

  1. the boys did well but I cannot say the same about the referee-absolutly diabolical! How does this damn gaffer still have a job!? Simply unbelieveable Arsenal are always getting screwed out of something EVERY SINGLE GAME! I’m so sick and tired of it and NO to the comment about Ade. No that is not how the rules work, if so then that damn bitch Lucas would have been sent off in the first half RIGHT!? Bullshit referees, Webb should be fired or at least never allowed to referee another Arsenal game for the rest of his career. Absolutly criminal that he can get away with such utter impotence and inability to do his job correctly. Can’t stand the piece of shit, someone kill him please.

    ps. in on way do i want him dead-just dead in our world of football is all.

  2. Denilson was pretty good in the second half and defensively ,esp. in the midfield i think it was a good display from the gunners.Nasri was invisible throughout the game. His only good pass led to the goal.

    I sure hope Wenger brings in Ramsey as a direct swap for Fabregas in the next few matches. And i hope to see the best of Eboue again.
    For me the formation should be …without Adebayor and Fabregas

    Almunia
    Sagna——GAllas—-Djorou—–Clichy
    Denilson——Song
    Diaby—–Ramsey——Nasri
    Van Persie

  3. gritty powerfull refusing to give in, is this the new Arsenal
    we did well to get a point, the ade decision was pathetic! the support was amazing we need to keep that up gooners! come on the Arsenal!
