ON THIS DAY

Tim Sherwoodโ€™s Villa can only draw at home with second from bottom Sunderland and the team against whom Villaโ€™s 2014-15 revival began under Sherwood looks a long time distant now as Villa have one win in four Premier League games and sit twelfth in the table on four points from four games.

MATCH QUOTES

โ€Anyone who watched that game knows that we should have won. We had 22 shots, the keeper has pulled off a โ€˜worldyโ€™ save and we should have had a penalty. We have been robbed. โ€œIt definitely should have been a penalty. Younes Kaboul pulls out but thereโ€™s contact - it is a penalty. My team couldnโ€™t have done any more today.โ€ Tim Sherwood, Saturday, 29 August 2015.
