It's the FA Cup Semi-Final this weekend, so how about a lovely little bonus show?

Aston Villa Review: Episode 116 - Villa defeat Tottenham Hotspur and set course for Wembley

It didn't start brilliantly but the past week came up roses for Aston Villa. A 3-3 draw against Queens Park Rangers at home demonstrated both the fragility of Villa's makeshift defence and the extraordinary quality of striker Christian Benteke, whose hat-trick highlighted an otherwise disappointing night.

No matter, though, because Villa got their unexpected win. Benteke was on the scoresheet again as Villa won 1-0 away at Tottenham Hotspur, leaving Tim Sherwood's side on 32 points with five games to play. In this week's show Chris and Steve examine those two matches and Villa's four-point return and, of course, look ahead to this Sunday's FA Cup Semi-Final against Liverpool

Aston Villa Review: Episode 115 - Villa beaten at Old Trafford before the biggest week of the season

Seven games to go and something in the region of seven points needed to secure Aston Villa's Premier League status for another year. In this week's show Chris and Steve examine the performance in Villa's annual defeat against Manchester United at Old Trafford and look ahead to what is arguably a crucial week in deciding Villa's fate.

Villa host Queens Park Rangers on Tuesday night with the Rs having been gifted an opportunity to overtake Villa with a win. Tim Sherwood and Chris Ramsey face off for the first time and Villa must find a way to stifle Charlie Austin and get their own attacking players in the groove, lest relegation become a likelihood rather than a possibility. On Saturday a trip to Tottenham Hotspur provides a chance to top up the points tally with a little something unexpected.
