Ayoze Perez sends message to Newcastle fans on Twitter ahead of Sunderland clash

Sunderland will face Newcastle United at the Stadium of Light in the Premier League on Sunday.

Newcastle United forward Ayoze Perez has taken to social networking site Twitter to send a rallying call ahead of this weekend’s Wear-Tyne derby against Sunderland away from home.

The Magpies will take on Sunderland at the Stadium of Light in the Premier League on Sunday and will head into the game on the back of a 6-2 victory over Norwich City at St. James’ Park.

Perez seems happy with how the week has gone for Newcastle and has posted the following message on Twitter:

The win against Norwich at St. James’ Park on Sunday was Newcastle’s first of the 2015-16 Premier League campaign.

It has certainly boosted the players’ confidence ahead of what promises to be a very exciting and competitive game against Sunderland this weekend.

Steve McClaren’s side will head into the Wear-Tyne derby placed third from bottom in the Premier League table with six points from nine matches, just two points behind 17th-place Bournemouth.
