They remain in the relegation zone but only on goal difference after West Ham had been beaten by the Spurs the night before.
Some of the fans of Villa are still fearful of the worst with the three games since the return of the Premier League with only two points.
But a man is back in form and has drawn and has won a lot of praise at St James’s Park.

@OTFShawzy: A relegation which does not appear fairly good probably needed a victory there to take the point. Fortunately, Bournemouth and west ham have lost. Luiz was sick this evening and hourihane must begin by elmo #avfc
@lewastbury: Douglas Luiz – MOTM for me.
Poor defence again – has been the biggest problem for us this season.
Our set pieces in general have been poor (other than for the purpose of Elmo)
Need to play more with the forces of Samatta – Guilbert or Elmo at RB for me.
Still worried, however.
@AVInteraction: Luiz was an absolute peach of a ping on him, how is it that he is never on kicks arrested?
@mylokieran: Douglas Luiz is a baller *******.
@charlieav: Douglas Luiz is a player is not
@tomlxnee: Douglas Luiz was a shining light in these three games, played very well
@AVFCFaithful_: Douglas Luiz. Even today fantastic
@ moylan92: Douglas Luiz was the MoTH today, assured defensive performance in front of the 4 rear, large range of passing, he has been immense, should have taken the early chances, awful defending to concede again.
@ ch1992_ch: Douglas Luiz is the only player with the aggression that is appropriate for a relegation battle. I hope that he takes the word in the locker room.
@ Deankerr04: Luiz best player on the field. Has been our best player since the start of the games. Not the victory we needed, but could be a valuable #avfc
@Reece_AV: Think Luiz is best in each match. McGinn does not think to be in top form and does not have much confidence in Nyland. That the wolves are tempted to start Elmo, offers you something in the future that we have missed the whole match. Jack has sometimes lost in the CM, I want to see mix
