The Tyne and Wear derby has even more importance on it when it rolls around on Sunday. Both Sunderland and Newcastle have big relegation concerns hanging over them and this could be a hugely crucial match for both of them.
Newcastle would push Sunderland down into the relegation zone with three points at home, but if they were to lose, then they would find themselves four points adrift of safety. Safety relies on them catching their rivals Sunderland who are a point above the drop zone.
Swansea are a further eight points clear of Sunderland so it’s likely that two of either Sunderland, Norwich and Newcastle will be joining Aston Villa in the Championship next season.
The Mackems have beaten Newcastle at the last six attempts in the Premier League and so have the form and they have only lost one of their last six top flight games, whereas Newcastle have lost five of their last six played in the Premier League. Survival is getting down to the wire now.
