Newcastle United and Sunderland meet for the first time since March 2016 on Saturday, when the two rivals face off in the FA Cup third round. 

The last meeting saw the two sides play out a 1-1 draw, with Aleksandar Mitrovic cancelling out a first-half Jermaine Defoe strike. Out of the 22 players who started the match, there’s still one Magpies player standing, too.

In the past eight years they’ve played in different divisions to one another, ensuring there’ll be extra needle heading into this Tyne-Wear derby. Newcastle are in a poor run of form, while Sunderland have momentum behind them under new boss Michael Beale.

But can the Black Cats use home advantage to take bragging rights and shock their opponents with a third-round knockout?
