Photos: Aston Villa players celebrate win over Liverpool, Sherwood shows his passion

Tim Sherwood Press Conference 12/02/2014

Tim Sherwood couldn't contain his delight as Aston Villa beat Liverpool on Sunday.

Aston Villa sprung a real surprise at Wembley Stadium on Sunday, defeating Liverpool 2-1 in the semi-finals of the FA Cup.

Liverpool were hot favourites entering the game, and Philippe Coutinho's opening goal appeared to put Liverpool on the right track to set up a final appearance against Arsenal.

However, they were stunned as Christian Benteke equalised just minutes later in the first half, drawing Villa level with a superb finish from inside the box.

Villa were quick and incisive around the penalty area, things they never were under Paul Lambert, and Liverpool couldn't prevent them from going in front in the second half.

Fabian Delph was able to cut inside onto his right foot and slam the ball beyond Simon Mignolet - and whilst Liverpool piled the pressure on late into the game, Villa managed to hang on and reach the FA Cup final.

The final whistle sparked huge celebrations from Villa fans, players and even manager Tim Sherwood, who has already turned Villa around from being a dour, dismal team into one who can score goals and beat big teams, having also defeated Tottenham 1-0 last weekend.

Here are some of the best photos from the celebrations, including Sherwood's passion as he joined in the jubilation at full time.
