Sherwood explains what disappointed him about Aston Villa's latest performance

Trinity Road Stand - Aston Villa

Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood wasn't happy with a specific element of his team's performance in their last game.

Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood has told talkSPORT what disappointed him about his side’s performance in their last Premier League game against Manchester United.

Villa went down 1-0 at the hands of United in their game last Friday, with Tim Sherwood’s side not able to back up their opening day win against Bournemouth.

Villa worked hard throughout the game to impress their home fans but just didn’t have enough to get into the game, following Adnan Januzaj’s deflected goal.

“It was a deflected goal, but what disappointed me most of all was that we didn’t really pose any threat,” he told talkSPORT.

Players still settling in

It was always going to be a big transition for the club to make when they lost Christian Benteke to Liverpool, but there are talented players and they need a little bit of time to settle in at the club.

They’re not going to click and start firing straight away and the frontline will look better when forward Rudy Gestede is fit enough to play for 90 minutes on a consistent basis.

All Sherwood can do in the meantime is work hard to ensure that all members of his squad are motivated and doing the right things to move forward.

Hopefully the defence will be able to play well, keep a high ratio of clean sheets and in turn, make the job of the attack a little bit easier in terms of reducing the number of goals Villa need to win games.
