Comments:

League position: 9th

Comments:

League position: 14th Anthony Reveillere was originally named in the starting line-up before suffering an injury in the pre-match warm-up. Sebastian Coates was promoted to the starting XI so Sunderland named only six of a possible seven substitutes. This is the first time in their history that Sunderland have completed a run of four consecutive league wins against Newcastle United.
