ON THIS DAY

Tim Sherwood's Villa win their fifth Premier League game in eleven to remain in 14th place, as they open the gap to the drop zone to four points with two games left to play. A goal difference worse than third from bottom club however leaves them in real danger of the drop.

MATCH QUOTES

โ€Iโ€™ve no interest in other results. Iโ€™ve said that for weeks and weeks. Itโ€™s in our own hands. We do our job. We win. โ€œToday wasnโ€™t pretty, but we scrapped it out. We thoroughly deserved the win, no question about that. โ€œWhen I have a cup of tea and watch this game back on Monday, Iโ€™ll be quite comfortable watching it.โ€ Tim Sherwood, Saturday, 9 May 2015.
