WATCH: Aston Villa fans taunt Newcastle supporters with 'Sunderland' chants
It was a dream day for Sunderland after their stunning comeback against Chelsea moved Sam Allardyce's side out of the relegation zone.
But while victory for Sunderland left the Black Cats requiring just two points from the remaining two games to beat the drop, it was a miserable afternoon for neighbours Newcastle United.
The Magpies were unable to find a breakthrough at Aston Villa and were restricted to a stalemate against the already-relegated basement boys.
There was no sympathy from Villa fans though, as they taunted the Newcastle contingent inside Villa Park by chanting 'Sunderland, Sunderland, Sunderland'.
