F.A Cup Quarter Final & F.A Cup Semi Final Draw
Even Cabella's goal was not enough
Aston Villa faced off against Stoke City today and looked totally inept in the first half as Villa went down 2-0 at half time through goals. The first goal for Stoke came through Jordan Ayew and was a great crisp strike into the bottom right hand corner after great play between Cabella and Kasami. Paul McGrath was on the touchline screaming at his players but his mood did not get better, if anything it got worse, a lot worse when on the 29th minute Remy Cabella looked to walk around the Villans defence and drilled the ball into the net to make it 2-0.
Villa, who already had lost in the League this month to Q.P.R somehow survived until the break and I am guessing that McGrath made his points in a calm fashion........
So when Villa got one back through an amazing strike by Luka Jovic, the fans finally started to believe again. Villa quickly equalised through Raheem Sterling, he picked the ball up and drilled the ball across the keeper and made it 2-2. Sterling's goal showed Villa fans just how good they could be and with Villa flying now, there looked to be just one winner.
Sterling hits the winner for Villa
Villa peppered the goal through Rondon, Stones and Sandro, but the third goal came when Sterling hit a 25 yard stunner to win game and signal a wonderful end of the tie for The Villans.
There Semi Final draw is yet another semi final against Chelsea at Wembley. This will be the second season in a row that Villa will play Chelsea at the same point in the competition with Chelsea coming out on top last season.
