Aston Villa's next two games are huge. They actually played very well for at least the first half, and looked like cruising to victory when Carles Gil doubled their lead. If Tim Sherwood can pick himself up he'll look back at the game differently. 

'It was a very fantastic match'

It was a fantastic second half. We know they played better early on but after 2-0 we started to play with our spirit and it was a very fantastic match. We scored a good first goal that gave confidence to everybody and maybe Villa players were wondering what could happen now.

Chris : RE: A Livid Villa fan below - I could not have put it better myself, that's exactly how I feel and what I was just ranting to a friend about

'I've never felt this bad. Ever.'

Leicester 3-2 Aston Villa

Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood, speaking to BBC Sport: "I’ve never felt this bad. Ever. There was a lot of bad play there in the last half hour. The only way you can stop the momentum is to stop the opposition. We turned it over stupidly.

"What can I say? I’m gutted for everyone who’s associated with the football club. We have to stop letting in soft goals.Who cares if we played well? We lost. Totally lost.

"The players are as disappointed as I am. They are a good group.We just have to stop the errors -  sooner rather than later. We’ve got two big derbies coming up, so we’ll make sure we are right for them.We played some good stuff but we've come away with nothing."

Stand by for a must-see interview from Tim Sherwood to the Match of the Day cameras. An excellent watch.

You can never, ever, criticise the Villa boss for not caring enough...

Leicester 3-2 Aston Villa

We lost control when they scored their first goal. Unfortunately, we couldn't wrestle the momentum back from them. We kept giving the ball back to them. The game should have been finished with 30 minutes left because we were 2-0 up. It was individual errors - we aim to stop that. On reflection them goals from Leicester, they didn't have to work hard for them. We got nothing from the game so I'm bitterly disappointed. They played well for an hour and we were unable to wrestle the game back.

Manager reaction

Leicester 3-2 Aston Villa

Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri, speaking to Sky Sports: "It’s fantastic. We showed spirit, good character, after 2-0 I watched my players and they believed everything was possible. You can lose but it’s important to fight until the end of the match. It was an important victory to restart well and get three points, it’s fantastic.

"I told the players we have 11 points and we still need 29. I don’t know when to achieve these points but as soon as possible. At the moment we want to think only about the safety of the team."

As a long serving Villa fan I feel that no matter who you buy or which manager you bring in the Aston Villa mentality is to lose. Since Martin O'Neill left Villa have deserved to go down nearly every season. To lose from 2-0 up in 10 minutes is not acceptable and I'm not upset, just the usual Villa performance many of us have learnt to accept. They don't deserve my empathy and emotional time. Villa are losers and will watch every club pass them by who have had much more humble beginnings. Leicester, Palace and Stoke all started with a lot less and have now surpassed us. We are now the cannon fodder of football. It's only a matter of time when you see us losing to Carlisle in the second division

Player reaction

Leicester 3-2 Aston Villa

We controlled the game in the first half. We knew it would be difficult in the second half. We didn't turn up in the second half. The first half they allowed us to play from the back. In the second half they moved up a little more. We couldn't play our game in the second half. We got a little complacent. As a new team we were always going to take time. But today when you're 2-0 up you should go on to win the game.

Aston Villa captain Micah Richards sounds and looks like a broken man as he goes through his post-match interview.

"We didn't turn up in the second half," he admits.

Player reaction

Leicester 3-2 Aston Villa

The team had great pace going forward. The second half we just needed to pick it up a bit more. Regarding my goal, the physio treating me told me I scored. I didn’t know beforehand. It was a nice feeling. I was just dazed - it was easy to get back up. It's a joy to play for a team like this.

Are you not entertained?

Leicester 3-2 Aston Villa

Aston Villa were in control for a large portion of that game, but with their 57% of possession they mustered eight shots, three of which were on target.

Leicester, on the other hand, had 21 efforts, six of which hit the target.

Player reaction

Leicester 3-2 Aston Villa

We came from far. It was a difficult game, especially in the first half. In the second half we did very well and scored three beautiful goals. Villa's second goal was my fault. I'm happy to help the team like that. We don't know how we will do this season. This game was very difficult. We'll see where we can go.

A great start to the season for Leicester - and they face Stoke, Arsenal, Norwich, Southampton and Crystal Palace in their next five games.

On this form they won't fear anyone.

"Leicester's reaction in the second half was nothing short of a miracle. 

"Nathan Dyer is celebrating with his team-mates and they know he was a little bit special in this second half. He was the hero of the day, for the bravery of his goal. 

"Outstanding from Leicester. They go into second place in the table. Unbelievable."

I don't want to be a killjoy but I'm not sure Nathan Dyer should still be out there. He looks very groggy as he tries to control a pass.

What a stirring second-half this has been. Tim Sherwood looks furious on the sidelines. He's just had no answer to the Riyad Mahrez show.

"A fantastic goal. Nathan Dyer makes such a brave run and again it's Riyad Mahrez who picks him out. 

"He's been brave with the ball at the feet but he's also been physically brave there because Brad Guzan was favourite to get it. This is embarrassing for Aston Villa."

Nathan Dyer (89 mins)

What a turnaround from Leicester City!

Substitute Nathan Dyer gets what must surely be a winner, though at some personal cost.

A cross comes in from the right, Riyad Mahrez again, Dyer gets to the ball ahead of Villa keeper Brad Guzan to head home and is then absolutely cleaned out.

Guzan's hip clattered into Dyer's face. He needed a long break for treatment but he's up, and the goal stands!

Bravo Jamie Vardy! Bravo Leicester City! Bravo football!

What an excellent second half this has been, entertainment everywhere you look as Leicester draw level.

Riyad Mahrez heavily involved again to drive into space, he pics out Danny Drinkwater in the right-wing channel and he then serves up a fine square ball for Vardy to attack, and slide into the net.

Villa were 2-0 up a while back. Now they're hanging on...
