MATCH SUMMARY

Villa lose their final League game of the season to relegated Burnley to end on consecutive defeats, 17th in the table, one place and three points clear of the drop. Tim Sherwood's recovery job had been achieved albeit by the slimmest margins but the limited shelf life of a motivator coach had already been reached.

KEY MAN

Christian Benteke lets fly but Villa end the Premier League campaign on successive defeats to finish one place above the relegation places under Tim Sherwood, Sunday, 24 May 2015.

ON THIS DAY

Tim Sherwood's Villa lose their seventh Premier League game in thirteen to end the season in 17th place, just three points off relegation.

Their latest defeat comes against relegated Burnley and means Villa have won just five of nineteen home League games.

In doing so, Villa scored their lowest ever goals total in a single league season, 31, beating their previous record of 36 in Division Two in 1969-70 - when they were relegated to the Third Division for the first time in their history.

Despite the final two games of the season, however, Sherwood had proven a perfect caretaker manager taking a demoralised and failing squad from his predecessor and instilling enough positivity and pragmatism to rescue Villa from odds on relegation.

Despite qualifying for their 11th FA Cup final it was however clear that there were limitations to Sherwoodโ€™s approach and that Villa still required the appointment of a top quality permanent manager in the close season to build on the brighter foundations that Sherwood had created.

โ€It (the Premier League table) tells no lies, where you finish in the league is where you deserve to finish. โ€œWe have a lot of players, and we canโ€™t just keep bringing them in. The mentality needs to change, itโ€™s been a club used to losing games and itโ€™s not good.โ€ Tim Sherwood, Sunday, 24 May 2015.
