Mehdi Abeid tweets ahead of Newcastle United’s clash against Sunderland

Newcastle United will face Sunderland at the Stadium of Light in the Premier League this afternoon.

Newcastle United midfielder Mehdi Abeid has taken to social networking site Twitter to send a strong message ahead of this afternoon’s clash against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.

The 22-year-old is set to feature in the Tyne-Wear derby after recovering from his injury, which forced him to miss the Magpies’ last two matches.

The Algeria Under-23 international could actually start the encounter, and he is looking forward to taking part in one of the biggest games in English football.

Just a few minutes ago, Abeid posted the following message on social networking site Twitter.

Newcastle will head into the contest placed 13th in the Premier League table with 35 points from 30 matches, while Sunderland are currently just a point above the relegation zone in 17th.

The Magpies are struggling for points and for form at the moment, and John Carver’s side will be keen on returning to winning ways.
