Alan Shearer avenges Newcastle on Twitter by mocking Sunderland, Lineker also jokes

Sunderland lost 6-2 at Everton on Sunday afternoon, prompting a laugh or two from the Newcastle United legend.

Alan Shearer took to Twitter to mock Sunderland on Sunday afternoon to try and avenge Newcastle United for their Wear-Tyne derby defeat.

Indeed, Newcastle were beaten 3-0 by Sunderland the previous week for the Black Cats' sixth derby win in a row. But Shearer was gleeful as Sam Allardyce's side lost 6-2 to Everton.

He took to social media to joke that it's six in a row one week and six in your net another. It seems few enjoyed Everton's win over Sunderland as much as the Mapgies legend!

Meanwhile, Shearer's colleague at the BBC, Gary Lineker, also took to Twitter to joke about Sunderland.

Indeed, he was a 'bit late' to the football, suggesting that Sunderland were as well. The Black Cats were 2-0 down to Everton but came back into the game when Lineker tweeted.

However, the Toffees took control of the game once more, scoring four goals after Sunderland had drawn level.

Everton travel to West Ham United for their next Premier League clash, while Sunderland host Southampton. Newcastle, meanwhile, travel to Bournemouth - and will hope to register only their second win of the season to save Black Cats fans hitting back at Shearer on social media!
