Newcastle returned to winning ways in the Premier League at the weekend when they got the better of Liverpool 2-0 at St. James’ Park.
Alright alright relax! Still can't beat Sunderland! https://t.co/1SnoyQtDAP— David Meyler (@DavidMeyler7) December 6, 2015
Newcastle have lost their last six matches against north-east rivals Sunderland.
While Sunderland are second from bottom in the Premier League at the moment, Newcastle are just a place and a point above them.
Sam Allardyce’s side will take on Watford at the Stadium of Light in the league this Saturday afternoon, while the Magpies will face Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
