Newcastle manager Kevin Keegan admitted his side were "bullied" by Aston Villa as a second-half John Carew hat-trick kept Martin O´Neill´s side on course for Europe.

The Magpies had looked as if they were on their way to a first win since Keegan returned after Michael Owen had struck for the second time in two games, but their defence found the physical presence of Carew and substitute Marlon Harewood impossible to counter during the second 45 minutes.

After the 4-1 defeat, Keegan said: "I had no complaints about the first half at all. I said to the players we had built a good platform from which to go on and win a football match.
