The Tyne-Weir Derby – Sunderland vs Newcastle
Sunderland wins: 27
Newcastle wins: 17
This fixture has produced some explosive encounters over the years as a truly football mad region turns out in force to support their sides. However, despite Sunderland recently gaining the upper hand in their latest encounters, this one has tended to end in a draw as two geared up teams end up cancelling each other out. Still, not many would have thought that the Black Cats have a better record considering their yo-yoing between the top two flights since the Premier League’s inception.
