Newcastle United vs. Sunderland: Tyne-Wear Derby Lineups & Live Match Thread

Stu Forster

Newcastle. Sunderland. It's go time.

This is a little early for me. I'll probably still be asleep when this thing actually posts. Do not be afraid. Lineups will be posted shortly.


The Tyne-Wear Derby needs no introduction, but here's a bit of an attempt: Newcastle > Sunderland. If the Toon win, it's business as usual, and in this case Sunderland are looking relegation straight in the face. If the mackems win, it's an embarrassment for the home team and a big freaking deal for the Unwashed.

Selected Tyne-Wear Derby stats:

  • Overall derby record: Newcastle 53 wins, Sunderland 46 wins, 49 draws. In Premier League play only, the record is Newcastle 9 wins, Sunderland 3 wins, and 9 draws.
  • The last time Newcastle failed to score in this fixture was in 1990. In the intervening period, Sunderland has failed to score in derby matches 7 times.
  • Alan Pardew's record against Sunderland: 1-0-3
