Manuel Almunia cut a highly disappointed figure when he spoke to Arsenal TV Online after the 2-2 draw at Aston Villa on Boxing Day. The keeper's goal has led a charmed life in the first half but the visitors responded with strikes either side of half time and looked like taking all three points before Zat Knight struck in the last minute. Afterwards Almunia talked about:

  • That agonising late goal
  • The first half performance
  • The character shown to come back
  • Playing 'without the handbrake'
  • The need to put a victory on the board
  • His view on Villa's penalty
  • His belief in Arsenal's title credentials
