Wembley places at stake as Sherwood shuffles Villa pack vs. Burnley

Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood reflects on his side's heavy defeat by Southampton and says they are nearing safety for next season.

Villa's final match of the season against Burnley might not be the relegation six-pointer that the neutrals were hoping for -- Leicester v QPR isn't either now -- but that doesn't make it a meaningless fixture. For Tim Sherwood the game presents a slightly different challenge to usual; it's a balancing act on three fronts.

Firstly, the Villa manager wants to win the game to take the team to the 41-point mark -- currently the club are on 38, the final total at the end of last season -- and also...

Tim Sherwood must rebuild Aston Villa to avoid another relegation battle

Sadio Mane recorded the fastest hat-trick in Premier League history, as Southampton thumped Aston Villa 6-1.

It's a surreal day that starts with a humiliating 6-1 thrashing and concludes in celebration. Saturday saw Aston Villa pride take a 6-1 thrashing at Southampton in a performance that was nothing short of disastrous.

However, hours later confirmation of Hull's loss at Tottenham meant Villa were safe from relegation, which took most of the sting out of the shambles at St Mary's.

Other than the fact that the result carried no real consequence there was nothing positive for Villa to take from the one-sided...

Grealish's international career rightly remains a question for the future

Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood speaks to the importance of staying in the Premier League and comments on the international status of Jack Grealish.

Where does Jack Grealish's international football career lie?

Will it be with the Republic of Ireland, or England? Quite frankly, it's a question that can wait to be answered and although there is an impatience for him to declare either way, once and for all, the Villa player has done exactly the right thing by pushing the issue aside for now.

Grealish, of course, is eligible to play for either country and he has played U21 football for Ireland. His senior future is yet to be decided. There has been...

Jack Reacher author reveals Aston Villa fandom via Jack Grealish debut

Club starlet Jack Grealish could be in line for a start on Saturday against Everton.
Jack Grealish's fine season will be celebrated with an appearance in a best-selling book series.

In reality, you'd probably have to be some kind of master sleuth to spot it, but there's a chance that eagle-eyed fans of the best-selling Jack Reacher novels may have stumbled across an obscure theme running throughout the books.

Author Jim Grant, who writes under his pen name Lee Child, just so happens to be a devoted boyhood Aston Villa fan, so when we tell you that there have been characters in his Reacher novels with surnames such as McGrath, Milosevic, Angel, Carbone, Vassell and Scimeca,...

The Relegation Scrap: Hull in trouble as Premier League battle nears end

The ESPN FC panel talk about the Premier League's relegation race, and believe Hull City are likely to be relegated with Burnley and Queens Park Rangers.
Hull City manager Steve Bruce says he's disappointed with the overall poor performance of his team.

Two rounds of games remaining and just one spot left to be filled after Burnley and Queens Park Rangers were condemned to Championship football on Sunday. Hull were the other big losers over the weekend and face an uphill battle to get back above the line.

Position: 14th
Points: 38

Tom Cleverley the goal machine has put Aston Villa close to safety

Tim Sherwood admits he is keen to keep on-loan Manchester City midfielder Tom Cleverley at Aston Villa.

Aston Villa's late season revival has been full of surprises and none more unexpected than the goal scoring run of Tom Cleverley.

"Goal machine" is stretching it a little -- though it's easy to see that new nickname catching on with amused teammates -- but there could not have been a better time for the midfielder to rediscover his scoring touch. His strike was sufficient to beat West Ham 1-0 on Saturday and move his loan club four points above the relegation zone.
