Aston Villa upset Liverpool to set up Wembley final with Arsenal.


 

Rejuvenated Aston Villa came from behind to beat Liverpool at Wembley in the second of the weekend's FA Cup semi-finals.

Villa, who haven't reached an FA Cup Final for 58 years saw goals from Christian Benteke and Fabian Delph secure a famous win. Liverpool, who were long 0dds-on favourites to get through were skippered by Steven Gerrard in what was a disap­po­inting end to his Liverpool Wembley career.

Villa, who are still only four points of the Premier League drop zone have been inspired in recent weeks under new boss Tim Sherwood and he took the accolades from the 'claret and blue' end of Wembley after the match.

Villa's last win was over Manchester United in 1957 - a then record 7th win - but they have only managed to reach the final once since - in 2000 when they lost to Chelsea.
