Is Tim Sherwood a good manager? Is he a great manager? Is he a genius manager?

While all the above questions are still far from being answered with any semblance of finality, what’s clear is that the first-year Aston Villa boss is brilliant when it comes to instilling the confidence and belief in strikers after taking over a team mid-season.

Sherwood did it last year with Emmanuel Adebayor after being named interim Tottenham Hotspur manager in December, and he’s done it again this season with Christian Benteke.

Benteke bagged another pair of goals in Villa’s 3-2 victory over Everton in leading his teammates to the brink of Premier League safety (35 points — three teams and two points clear of the final relegation place). For his contributions, Christian Benteke is the Premier League Player of the Week.
