Tim Sherwood revelled in his first win as Aston Villa's manager after his team beat West Bromwich Albion 2-1.

Sherwood celebrated like Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, pumping his fists on the touchline and offering up a prayer before Christian Benteke's winning penalty.

'It's incredible, a fantastic feeling to win. My wife said she did the EuroMillions and gets £54m if she wins. I said I'd rather take three points and I genuinely mean that," he said after the match.

When asked if Aston Villa had turned a corner, he said: "I think so. We have conceded late against Stoke and it is a real body blow, but to score one late is an excellent feeling and I thought it was thoroughly deserved.

"We are improving every game and we are still alive and kicking. It's a massive football club and it is at the wrong end of the table.

"A Tony Pulis side is never dead. It was always likely to be a set piece. We kept at it and someone was looking down on us today. I'll try anything, we are at that stage.

"We hadn't won in 12 Premier League games and had to buck that trend. I think we deserved the three points and onwards and upwards."
