Aston Villa 2:1 West Brom

Christian Benteke is responsible for the victory of Aston Villa! He scored a perfect goal, from the penalty shot. This victory means that Aston Villa is moving out the relegation zone. The match was very interesting. The first goal was in the first half, by Gabriel Agbonlahor. After this goal, we thought that this is going to be a 13th game without victory for Aston Villa. The situation stays the same even when Saido Berahino, equalized. This was his 18th goal of the season.

Just a few seconds before the end, Ben Foster, a West Brom keeper, made a mistake so Benteke could score second goal. This provided 3 points to the Aston Villa, first time since December!

After the game, Sherwood celebrated for the first victory of 6, which are needed so Aston Villa can stay up. I am wondering, did they invite Foster, because he is responsible for this win.

The former midfielder of England show the best performance in the first half. But, in the second half Aston Villa played much better, so at the end, victory had to be achieved.

Beside this victory is important for bringing 3 points to the team, it is much more important as a motivation for the FA Cup quarter-final. Which will held at Villa Park on Saturday.

The goal-line technology confirmed that Foster came just in time to grab the ball before it crossed the goal line. This was the reason for the frustration among Aston Villa’s players and fans. But at the end, every victory is a good victory.
