Tim Sherwood: Aston Villa's Jack Grealish 'has a big future at the club'

Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood gave special praise to rising star Jack Grealish after their 2-1 win over Liverpool in the FA Cup semi-final.

The 19 year-old boyhood Villa fan played a part in both goals and received a standing ovation from the Wembley crowd when he was subbed off late.

Sherwood said Grealish was someone he had looked before he came to the club.

Alcohol will be banned on today's London Midland trains to and from Aston Villa's FA Cup Semi-Final at Wembley against Liverpool.

There will be some extra stops at Wembley Central on a number of services departing from Birmingham.

Because these trains will be busy, the alternative is to change trains at Harrow and Wealdstone station and catch London Overground rail services to Wembley Central.

There are also no London Midland trains between Redditch and Birmingham New Street until 11:27. If you need to travel into the city, rail replacement bus services are in place.

After the game, the following London Midland trains will call at Wembley Central for onward travel to Birmingham:

  • 1725
  • 1804
