Aston Villa almost safe under Sherwood but there's still work to do

Tim Sherwood labelled his Aston Villa side 'heroic' after their win over Everton.
Tim Sherwood labelled his Aston Villa side 'heroic' after their win over Everton.

When Tim Sherwood was appointed Aston Villa manager in February, he maintained that six wins would be required in order for the club -- then in the bottom three -- to escape relegation.

Saturday's excellent 3-2 victory over Everton was number four and the way the Premier League table stands, Sherwood's initial assessment will be spot on. Villa probably will have to win two further matches to stay up.

Continue playing like they have in the last few weeks and Sherwood's side are more than capable...

The Relegation Scrap: Premier League battle enters the final straight

The ESPN FC crew discuss the clubs they believe are the most likely to be relegated at the end of the season.

With four rounds of games remaining in the Premier League season, Dale Johnson assesses the teams battling to avoid the drop.

NEWCASTLE UNITED
Position: 14th
Points: 35
Remaining fixtures: Leicester (a), West Brom (h), QPR (a), West Ham (h)

Newcastle are still very much the outsiders to go down at this stage, though a run of seven consecutive defeats -- their worst run of losses in the top flight for 38 years -- has left them on the verge of being dragged into trouble.

They travel to Leicester this...

Everton the first of four key clashes for Aston Villa

Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood says he's not interested in any favours from other teams, and believes his side's recent performance is very encouraging.

Four matches to go, four teams below.

There is no respite in this relegation battle. Three weeks ago the 1-0 victory at Tottenham moved Villa onto 32 points; a decisive step forward. But that result already feels a distant memory because of the movement at the foot of the table. It's distinctly uncomfortable in the lower reaches of the Premier League.

For Villa fans, the annual relegation battle is a draining experience. Annual relegation battle? Yes, for this is the fifth season in a row the...

Aston Villa lose at Manchester City but plenty to admire in cruel 3-2 defeat

Substitute Fernandinho struck a late winner as Manchester City killed off an Aston Villa comeback to claim a frantic 3-2 victory at the Etihad Stadium.
Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini reacted to his side's last minute 3-2 win over Aston Villa, where he felt his side were far more dominant.
Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood explains his side had real belief to secure maximum points from Manchester City, but indicates Villa gifted Manuel Pellegrini's side a few goals.

In Villa's position points are all that really matter at this stage of the season but once Tim Sherwood's players have digested the disappointment of leaving the Etihad Stadium with nothing, they should have every reason to approach the remaining four matches of the campaign with confidence.

It's rare that Villa have come away from a visit to Manchester City feeling hard done by but that was the case after Saturday's 3-2 defeat. For the first 25 minutes of the match Sherwood's team were jittery,...

Can Aston Villa's new manager Tim Sherwood save the club from the drop?

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop expresses his skepticism of Aston Villa appointing Tim Sherwood as their new manager.

Tim Sherwood is Aston Villa's manager. Let that sink in for a moment: the bookies' favourite to succeed Paul Lambert was confirmed as the club's new No. 1 on Saturday afternoon.

It's no surprise. As soon as names were mentioned, Sherwood's jumped to the top of the list. For Villa, he ticked several boxes. Most importantly, he was available for an immediate start. He has experience of managing a Premier League club, albeit briefly but also fairly successfully. He's also demonstrated a flair for working...

Jose Mourinho replies to boy, six, who wants him at Aston Villa

Paul Lambert has been sacked as manager of Aston Villa -- and for one fan, there's only one candidate to replace him.

With things beginning to get mightily desperate at his relegation-threatened club, one young Aston Villa fan took the initiative and recently went out on a limb in a bid to help turn his side's ailing fortunes around.

Jude Branson, aged 6, wrote a letter to Jose Mourinho, inquiring as to whether he'd be willing to down tools at Chelsea in order to come and rescue Villa from the drop-zone quagmire -- and, if he'd be so kind, could he also bring Diego Costa with him.

"Dear Mr Mourinho, My name is...
