Villa supporters are hopeful after Newcastle's four-goal loss at Stamford Bridge.
Indeed, the Blues thrashed Newcastle by four goals to leave a bewilderingly confident and woefully out-of-his-depth Steve McClaren under increased pressure at St James' Park.
And Villa fans may even have hope of staying up if their rivals in the relegation battle are just that bad...
Of course, there is still a long, long way to go for Aston Villa and Newcastle losing doesn't miraculously change the fact the Midlands side need to start winning.
But the Magpies looked so poor against Chelsea that Villa fans can dream of at least finishing above them.
At the same time, fans of the bottom side in the Premier League simply had to comment on Newcastle on Twitter - as they've seen some truly awful performances this season and were surprised to see another team do as badly if not worse...
