Elastico Superfly womens Wembley was supposed to be the scene for Gerrard's grand send-off, with the final falling on his 35th birthday and supposedly destined to be the last game of his long Anfield career before embarking on a new challenge with Los Angeles Galaxy.

It was a familiar foe who set the wheels of defeat in motion as rejuvenated Belgium striker Christian Benteke, who memorably terrorised Liverpool's defence with a two-goal show at Anfield in December 2012, cancelled out Philippe Coutinho's opener with his ninth goal in his last seven games.

Fabian Delph's strike 10 minutes into the second half booked Villa's first FA Cup final appearance since 2000 as Liverpool's pressure was too little and far too late.

He was given the chance to lead the side out at Wembley after Lucas Leiva sustained a thigh injury in training but he looked like a player with just 27 minutes' football behind him in the last two months as a result of injury and suspension.

This was not the Gerrard who took the 2006 final by the scruff of the neck at the Millennium Stadium and at times it looked like he was playing from memory, making runs but not quite getting on the end of things and then seeing Villa pass the ball around him.

Even a mid-half change in formation as manager Brendan Rodgers switched to 4-2-3-1 - mainly to combat Villa's dominance - with the captain moved into his supposedly most effective position behind the striker failed to get any more out of him.

All the focus on Gerrard overshadowed a confident performance by Villa's midfield with young tyro Jack Grealish belying his 19 years with a composed and energetic display, ably supported by Delph.

Liverpool's move to a flat back four actually saw them establish a foothold in the game which led to them taking a 30th-minute lead when Jordan Henderson's cut-back eventually made its way to Raheem Sterling via a Gerrard tackle and Lazar Markovic.
