Newcastle United sent Aston Villa message as Champions League hope outlined

The latest Aston Villa news as Newcastle confirmed their place in the Champions League next season with a 0-0 home draw against Leicester City on Monday night.

Aston Villa fans have taken to social media to send their congratulations to Newcastle United after the club confirmed Champions League football next season – with many hoping that Villa will be in a similar position sooner rather than later.

After Villa’s 1-1 draw with Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday, the Magpies required just a point against relegation-threatened Leicester in order to confirm a top four finish with one game left to play.

Former Villa boss Dean Smith opted for a defensive set-up to make his team harder to beat, and that was the case as both teams played out a 0-0 draw at St James’ Park. The point was enough to confirm Champions League football for Newcastle, and gives Leicester a fighting chance of escaping relegation in their final game vs West Ham.

Following the full-time whistle, Villa fans gave their reaction to Newcastle’s achievement, sending their congratulations as well as outline how they hope to be in a similar position in the next few seasons.
