Here is a breakdown of the Villa’s best and worst performers in terms of ratings and statistics vs Everton with Given, Warnock and Agbonlahor impressing.

Player Ratings

Shay Given – 7.5 – a string of saves saw him the busier of the keepers and a superb stop from Cabaye kept Villa level

Alan Hutton – 6.5 – far more assured on his home debut that last time out in a steady display

Richard Dunne – 6.5 – solid enough, good distribution from the back

James Collins – 6.5 – better in the air this time out

Stephen Warnock – 7.5 – easily the best defender on the day and just pipped Given to MoM for me

Stiliyan Petrov – 6.5 – played in a far more advanced position early on but faded due to injury

Fabian Delph – 6.5 – a busier display than last week but still not in the form of his first couple of matches

Charles N’Zogbia – 6 – worryingly subdued again, posing little threat

Barry Bannan – 6.5 – bright, confident display but Villa need to utilize him more often

Gabby Agbonlahor – 7 – took goal well and was unlucky not to have a second after a great turn and shot

Darren Bent – 6 – like N’Zogbia he was quiet again and missed somewhat of a sitter, needs confidence


Stephen Ireland – 6.5 – steady cameo but couldn’t make much of an impact

Marc Albrighton – 6.5 – looked to impress again and should earn a start sooner rather than later

Nathan Delfouneso – no time

  2. Frankly I cannot see how you justify anyone apart from Given who was excellent with higher than a 5. the 5th of 5 dire , clueless totally lacking in creativity performance.
    7 points from the poorest teams in the land is dismal. Dread it when we start playing the decent teams.

    Please wake and start reporting rhe real sitautionnat Villa which is deperate.

    5th rate business manangement. 4th rate Manager. Team suffering from above and totally lacking any creativity.
