FA CUP : Aston Villa 2 Vs 1 Leicester City. 3 Late Goals Settle Thriller Between EPL Relegation Battlers

share on:

Scott Sinclair scored his first goal for Aston Villa in a 2-1 win over Leicester to send them through to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

Leandro Bacuna’s stunning strike in the 68th minute opened the scoring for the home side after a goalless first half, with new boss Tim Sherwood having been in the Villa changing room at the break.

Sinclair added the second a minute before full-time after Christian Benteke chipped the ball over the City defence and Mark Schwarzer fumbled the ball.
But as Villa thought they were through with the score at 2-0, up popped Andrej Kramaric in the 90th minute to head past Shay Given.

Leicester’s late rally unnerved Villa but they held firm and secured their spot in Monday’s draw for the FA Cup quarter-finals.

Aston Villa’s newly appointed manager Tim Sherwood will take control of his first official game in charge of the club when they take on Stoke City in the EPL , while Leicester travel to Everton as they look to get out of the relegation zone.
