Sunderland are just one position above the relegation zone and are same points(25) with Norwich City who are 18th position also they are just one point ahead of Newcastle who are in the 19th position.

Rafa Benitez lost his first game in charge as Newcastle manager but will be looking forward to make the best out of the TyneWear derby and claim bragging rights over Sunderland.

both teams needs nothing less than a win to grab the maximum points and move out of the relegation zone for the time being.

Form comparison

Both teams are in a very bad shape but i’ll say that Newcastle’s form is a disaster, they are currently on a 4 game loosing streak and have lost 6 of their last 7 matches.

Sunderland have won only 1 of their last 6 matches, lost 2 and drew 3 which is a very poor form as they have picked only 6 points in theses games from a possible 18.

Newcastle: Team News

Newcastle have a handful of injuries in their list, 12 of their senior players are injured; Tim Krul, Ivan Toney, Gabriel Obertan, Massadio Haidara, Papiss Demba Cisse, Kevin Mbabu, Curtis Good, Sylvain Marveaux, Fabricio Coloccini, Tioté and Paul Dummett.

Chancel Mbemba is Doubtful for the clash and he is unlikely to be fit before the game.

Newcastle: Predicted line-up


Sunderland: Team News

Sam Allardyce will be hoping that Jeremain Lens, Cattermole, Eboue and Wahbi Khazri gets fit before the match while Duncan Watmore is ruled out of the clash due to ankle injury.

Jermain Defoe is also out due to calf problem.

Newcastle vs Sunderland: Head-To-Head stats

Sunderland have dominated the Tyne Wear derby, They have won their last 6 games against Newcastle both home and away, they have also kept a clean sheet in their last four games against Newcastle.

Sunderland have conceded only 1 goal against Newvastle in their last 6 games. Superb!!!

Newcastle vs Sunderland: Prediction

Rafa’ Benitez would have to win this derby game if he wants the fans on his side, but with this injury plagued team and their current shambolic form, its a hard task for him.

Sunderland are the favourites in this game, they have been winning in both halves in their last 6 games against Newcastle.

With the new manager at Newcastle, the jinx might be broken this time, the game would likely end in a draw and the total goals would be under 2.5 goals
