Newcastle boss Kevin Keegan admitted his side are firmly entrenched in a battle for Barclays Premier League survival after a 5-1 thrashing by Manchester United.

United reduced the gap to leaders Arsenal to three points as Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney scored twice and Louis Saha added a fifth in a one-sided clash at St James´ Park.

Keegan said: "I have said all along, we need 40 points this year, and we have got 28. Anybody who has not got 40 points can be relegated - and in the past, teams with 42, 43 have. To get to 40, we need four wins, or three wins and three draws."
