Newcastle United will host Sunderland in an attempt to complete the 10th Tyne-Wear Derby double in their storied history. The Magpies sit 6th in the table, and with a victory, they will draw even on points with Chelsea, who fell to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.
In-form Sunderland and new boss Martin O'Neill will attempt to reverse their
recent derby fortunes by utilizing their effective 5-man midfield, and Newcastle will counter with the central pairing of Yohan Cabaye and Cheik Tiote, who have played less than half of the team's fixtures together.
Howay the lads!
