ON THIS DAY

Tim Sherwood's Villa win their fourth Premier League game in ten and climb to 14th place in the table, but are only two points clear of the drop zone as jeopardy continues. Much of Villa's revival under Sherwood had come under Christian Benteke who had now scored eleven in his last nine however the entire side looked significantly improved albeit hamstrung by the dreadful run of games under Lambert.

MATCH QUOTES

โ€œIt was a huge win today but you know what, Iโ€™ve drove [sic] myself mad ever since Iโ€™ve been here looking at the fixtures of other teams and the league table. Iโ€™ve got no interest now. โ€œIf we donโ€™t do our job we deserve to go down. Everyone is going to win, itโ€™s a freak season, isnโ€™t it? โ€œLeicester can go and win four in 29 or whatever it was and then they win five in six. Itโ€™s enough pressure trying to look after your own team, never mind worrying about everyone elseโ€™s results. If we win the games that are available to us โ€ฆ and I think we might need to win them all to stay in the league. โ€œI thought Fabian Delph showed why heโ€™s probably, in my opinion, the best midfield player in the country at the moment. I wouldnโ€™t swap him for anyone in the mess weโ€™re in. โ€œItโ€™s not only about energy and desire, itโ€™s about flair and imagination. Heโ€™s got the whole package. I see Roy Hodgson was up there, I think he would have been very impressed with the two midfield players, Cleverley as well.โ€ Tim Sherwood, Saturday, 2 May 2015.
