Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard congratulates Aston Villa's Christian Benteke for latest goal

The Belgian was supporting his countryman on Twitter this afternoon.

It certainly was a great day in the life of Tim Sherwood, and Aston Villa for that matter. The Villans travelled to Tottenham Hotspur's White Hart Lane today, where Tim Sherwood was unceremoniously dumped last summer - and won.

Before his arrival at the club Christian Benteke was going through a fairly abysmal spell in front of goal. He had scored just three goals this season before Sherwood arrived, he now has 12, including five in his last three games.
