Road to Wembley – Villa make it all the way

_82420986_villaOur Road to Wembley boys Aston Villa did us proud beating Liverpool at Wembley on Sunday to reach the FA Cup Final, where they will play Arsenal

Villa’s win was a triumph for manager Tim Sherwood as his side produced a performance of style, composure and grit to come from behind and reach their first FA Cup final since their loss to Chelsea in 2000.

As a consequence there will be no dream finale to his Liverpool career for Steven Gerrard. The Reds skipper, who will join Major League Soccer side LA Galaxy in the summer, was hoping to make a final appearance for the club in an FA Cup final scheduled to take place on 30 May, his 35th birthday.

Philippe Coutinho clipped Liverpool into the lead but the dangerous CHRISTIAN BENTEKE levelled before half-time and Villa scored the winner their display fully merited through FABIAN DELPH’S cool finish nine minutes after the break.

Lethargic Liverpool mounted a rally of sorts late on when Kieran Richardson cleared off the line from Liverpool captain Gerrard and half-time substitute Mario Balotelli was dubiously ruled offside when he had the ball in the net, but there were wild scenes as Villa reached their 11th FA Cup Final.

Congrats to the Villans.
