Player Ratings

Shay Given – 8 (MoM) – A string of crucial stops in the second half earned Villa a point

Luke Young – 6.5 – Solid enough at the back but offered nothing going forward

James Collins – 7 – Strong and dependable

Richard Dunne – 7 – A couple of vital headed clearances from set-pieces showed improvement from last year

Stephen Warnock – 7.5 – Unquestionable work rate as ever and largely untroubled

Stiliyan Petrov – 6.5 – Steady as per, uninspiring as per, good shot in first half

Fabian Delph – 7.5 – Lovely touches in first half, good passing and a couple of tackles to boot

Charles N’Zogbia – 6 – Nervy at times and wasteful in possession, uninvolved

Emile Heskey – 6.5 – The best of Villa’s attackers, good effort and aerial presence as ever

Gabby Agbonlahor – 6 – Did very little and is ineffective out wide, booked and mouthy

Darren Bent – 6 – Struggled to get in to the game, slightly better in second half but isolated


Marc Albrighton – 7 – Good tracking back and a decent, solitary effort at goal in the second half

Ciaran Clark – No time
