We're still not quite sure what Tim Sherwood is trying to tell his players.

Leading 2-0 and looking comfortable after 65 minutes, Sherwood begins flailing his arms about wildly as he tried to communicate with a player.

It's hard to know whether it had a negative impact on the game or tired out the Villa coach but they did go on to lose the game 3-2.

For just over and hour it was probably Villa's best performance of the season but they remain without a league win since the opening day of the season and manager Tim Sherwood could not hide his dejection afterwards

"I've never felt this bad, ever. Who cares? Who cares if we played well?" he said.

"I'm bitterly disappointed for everyone associated with the club because the game is won with around 30 minutes to go.

"The game was done, it was finished with us 2-0 up. At this level the game should be dead and buried but unfortunately we've made some unforced errors and it has cost us the game.

"Individual errors. It has been happening a bit this season but it needs to stop happening.

"Those goals for Leicester, they haven't had to work very hard for them.

"The first goal gives them the momentum and unfortunately we couldn't wrestle it back off them. The only way you can do that is by keeping the ball off them and we just kept giving it back to them. It was not good enough."
