Sherwood left 'devastated' after first Villa defeat at home
New boss Tim Sherwood admitted he was "devastated" after Stoke stunned Aston Villa.
Victor Moses' stoppage-time penalty ruined Sherwood's debut as Villa manager despite Scott Sinclair giving the hosts the lead. Ron Vlaar was also sent off after bringing Moses down as the winger clinched a 2-1 win at Villa Park.
Defeat was Villa's sixth on the bounce in the Premier League and left them winless in 11 top-flight games. And they remained in the relegation zone, dropping to second bottom after Burnley's 1-1 draw at Chelsea.
Sherwood said: "I'm devastated, no-one feels as down as I am. I can be devastated now but I won't be on Monday.
"We need to move on, if you are dwelling on the last game then they start to run out. It's not all rosy in the garden here and no-one thought it was going to be easy but it was a cruel way to lose the game."
