Villa lost 1-0 to the Baggies on Saturday, with Saido Berahino's goal proving to be the difference between the two Midlands rivals.
It was a disappointing result for Villa, but Sherwood insists that the final score did not reflect the way the match had panned out - which has been a common theme for his side this season.
"There was nothing in the game like every match we've played this season," he reflected. "It's always been the odd goal. I don't think we have achieved the points tally that we've deserved. But at this level, it's the fine margins. It's time our luck changed and something went for us."
Villa will need their luck to change soon, as the pressure is mounting on Sherwood to find a solution to the problems which have been all too obvious this season.
Although the Claret and Blues were always likely to suffer with inconsistency, after making so many changes this summer, their results have been worrying so far.
Villa haven't won a league match since the opening day of the season, when they beat Bournemouth 1-0, and the mood around Villa Park is threatening to turn sour.
Sherwood's side's next match is against Birmingham City, and a defeat against their bitter rivals in League Cup competition would heap even more pressure onto the players and their boss.
