Newcastle Stand

Sunderland beat Newcastle United 3-0 at St James' Park earlier today.

What a difference Gus Poyet has made to this Sunderland team.  Their 3-0 victory against Newcastle United (their third successive derby win) not only earned bragging rights but also sent the Black Cats up to 12th in the Premier League.

Fabio Borini continued his fine recent record from the penalty spot to give Sunderland the lead after Vurnon Anita had brought down Phil Bardsley. Adam Johnson then doubled the visitors' advantage just four minutes later, before Jack Colback hit the Magpies on the counter-attack late on to round off an emphatic victory.

Liam Bridcutt made his debut for Sunderland after his move from Brighton, and he looked composed in the centre of the field. Newcastle, on the other hand, missed the chance to go level on points with Manchester United and climb a little closer to the European places.

Alan Pardew's men remain in eighth place on 37 points.
