LONDON (Sporting Alert) — The boos are ringing around the Emirates Stadium as Arsenal find themselves down 2-0 at half-time to Aston Villa in their FA Cup fourth round clash.
Robbie Keane found Richard Dunne with a cross for him to leap high and head home past goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski in the 33rd minute of the play.
Darren Bent then pounced on his own rebound to put Villa 2-0 up on the stroke on half-time after he finished off his own shot that was initially saved by Fabianski.
As the whistle sounded for the end of the first half, the boos sounded around the Emirates as the Arsenal FC players and manager head to the locker room with their heads down.
Alex McLeish, the Villa boss, is however, in delight as he prepares for his half-time team speech.
