Player Aston Villa let go in January slams ‘embarrassing’ FA Cup display

Aston Villa

Aston Villa suffered a 4-0 defeat to Arsenal in the final of the FA Cup at London’s Wembley Stadium on Saturday evening.

Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Jordan Graham has criticised the performance of Aston Villa against Arsenal on social networking site Twitter.

Villa lost the final of the FA Cup 4-0 at London’s Wembley Stadium on Saturday evening.

England international forward Theo Walcott put Arsenal in the lead in the 40th minute, and Chilean star Alexis Sanchez doubled the advantage five minutes into the second half.

German defender Per Mertesacker made it 3-0 to Arsenal with a header just past the hour mark, and France international striker Olivier Giroud wrapped up the comprehensive win late on.

Arsenal were in control of the game from start to finish and deservedly won the final by such a big margin.

Over the course of the 90 minutes, Arsene Wenger’s side had 58% of the possession, took 16 shots of which nine were on target and earned eight corners.

In contrast, Tim Sherwood’s Villa had 42% of the possession, took just two shots of which neither was on target and did not earn a single corner.

Graham, who moved to Wolves from Villa in the January transfer window, was following the final, and he was far from impressed with the performance of Sherwood’s team.
