The Black Cats beat their arch rivals once again at St James' Park on Sunday afternoon.
The Black Cats had Adam Johnson to thank yet again for scoring against the Magpies, as they left St James' Park with a clean sheet and all three points.
And Sunderland boss Guys Poyet was delighted with his side's performance at Newcastle.
"Putting everything into consideration, we were totally deserved winners today," Poyet told Sky Sports after the 1-0 win over Newcastle.
"If you are on the losing side, it’s painful but if you look at the whole game - the clear chances we created, the way we held Newcastle and didn't stop attacking and breaking and trying to score the goal - I think in the end it was totally deserved.
"I know sometimes a few shots and moments of noise because of this incredible stadium make it a little bit even, but overall we were much superior today."
Poyet, of course, wasn't the only one...
