Wojciech Szczesny Flop of the Match
The Pole was due a bad game and it came at just the wrong time. Fortunate not to concede a penalty and be sent off in the first few minutes when he mowed down Bowyer, only be saved by an erroneously raised linesman’s flag. Culpable for Birmingham’s opener by racing out of his goal and failing to beat Zigic to Johnson’s knock-on. Made partial amends with a fine block from Zigic to stop Birmingham going 2-0 up but his shocking handling to let in Martins for the winner will haunt him – and Arsenal – for a long time.
