Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger highlighted Alex Song's performance in victory over Aston Villa.

Theo Walcott's goal on 25 minutes was perfectly executed, the England winger collecting a chipped pass from Song before slotting the ball past Shay Given.

The Cameroon international supplied a similar cross for captain Robin van Persie to net a last-gasp winner at Liverpool.

Wenger said: "I would like to give credit to the pass from Song, because it is not the first time he has done that.

"You do not see many defensive midfielders [do that]. If you look at the assists that he has made this season, you will see that his numbers are top in Europe."
