Arsenal's Carling Cup final ratings
he young Gunners did themselves proud mostly, see our ratings below:

Almunia: 5 - should have saved Drogba's first goal and is not good enough to replace Lehmann as first choice next season.

Hoyte: 7 - not quite Lauren's standard yet, but defensively reasonably sound.

Toure: 8 - fought bravely until his dismissal.

Senderos: 7 - got beaten in the air by Drogba for the winner, but made some telling blocks. Probably should not be ahead of Djourou in the pecking order though.

Traore: 7 - attacked with pace and trickery, but was at fault for Chelsea's first goal.

Walcott: 7 - superby taken goal and caused Bridge some problems at the back.

Fabregas: 7 - looking a bit jaded, but still a class act.

Denilson: 7 - a couple of sloppy balls, but some great vision at times too.

Diaby: 7 - good feet but a bit injury prone. Also not at his best on left side of midfield.

Baptista: 6 - never really made an impact, apart from one great shot that Cech kept out. Not looking quite good enough to become a first team regular.

Aliadiere: 5 - ran his heart out, but is not penetrative enough to become a top Arsenal striker.

Eboue: 5 - didn't do anything significant.
Hleb: 5 - see Eboue.
Adebayor: 4 - a top player, but had no chance to show it thanks to poor officiating.

Wenger: 5 - selected a good starting XI, but dismantled it with poor substitutions. Taking off Traore was a major mistake, as the young left back helped keep Chelsea on the back foot.
