Guzan registered his second consecutive shutout in Aston Villa’s 0-0 draw at Newcastle on Saturday. Neither team really created much in the way of attacking opportunities, but the presumed U.S. number one -- now in line for the starting gig after Tim Howard decided to step away from international duty -- made four saves to ensure Villa left with a point.
