ON THIS DAY

Villa gain a modicum of revenge for their defeat at Arsenal in late December but failure to beat the Gunners means no win in four League games, two draws, two defeats and no goals as Villa remain in seventh. Meanwhile the ridiculous Arsene Wenger - who has brought so much good to English football - makes a fool of himself once again leaving his legacy further tarnished for any neutral.

MATCH QUOTES

“I thought we played splendidly. We haven’t had have points on board we probably deserve from our last four games. “We should have won tonight. We played strongly, kept going and should have won. Arsenal are very fine side but we were terrific. “We haven’t won or scored in four matches but we’ve had umpteen chances and I’m not concerned. Not just our effort but our play was terrific. “We’ve had a tough run of games and have another tough run of games ahead of us now. We’re sticking at it and out players have down football club proud in last couple of weeks. We’re going to hang in there in the league. “He has made a few ridiculous statements in his time here (in England) and that is as good as any. That is an appalling insult. “I thought we played splendidly in the game. Their ‘keeper made a great save from Gabby (Agbonlahor) early on and Ashley Young produced some incredible balls into the box that just needed a touch on them. “Arsenal caused us problems and we had a bit of luck when they hit the post and crossbar but we did not deserve to lose in this game. “I thought we played splendidly and should have won. We haven’t won or scored in four matches but we’ve had umpteen chances and I’m not concerned.” Martin O’Neill.
