Newcastle in danger after failure to win at Aston Villa

Newcastle's Barclays Premier League fate is out of their own hands after a goalless draw at already-relegated Aston Villa.

The Magpies created the better chances but were wasteful in front of goal, most notably in the second half through Jack Colback and Aleksandar Mitrovic - who also went very close to breaking the deadlock with a header.

The point extended their unbeaten run to five matches under Rafa Benitez but Newcastle finished the day in the bottom three after north-east rivals Sunderland twice came from behind to beat Chelsea 3-2 at the Stadium of Light.

It leaves The Toon a point behind the Black Cats, who have a game in hand and could send Benitez's side down with victory at home to Everton on Wednesday night.
