Sunderland vs Newcastle lineups, team news

Sunderland will go with their strongest available team for this game as they aim to continue Newcastle’s frustrations in 2024.

Jude Bellingham’s younger brother Jobe is the standout name for the Black Cats, with the 18-year-old already scoring four goals so far this season.

Sunderland (4-2-3-1, right to left): Patterson (GK) — Hume, O’Nien, Ballard, Alese — Ekwah, Neil — Clarke, Bellingham, Pritchard — Rusyn.

Sunderland subs (9): TBC

Eddie Howe’s injury list still stretches on into double figures at the start of 2024 and he will be forced to reshuffle. The demands of the Premier League mean he will rotate in some squad names with Matt Ritchie and Javier Manquillo potential starters.

Newcastle (4-3-3 right to left): Dubravka (GK) — Livramento, Schar, Lascelles, Manquillo — Miley, Longstaff, Guimaraes — Ritchie, Wilson, Hall.

Newcastle subs (9): TBC

Sunderland vs Newcastle  prediction

The possibility for a shock looks to be high in this clash with Sunderland flying high in the EFL Championship on the back of an unbeaten three-game run.

Newcastle have last four in a row from the end of 2023 into the start of 2024 and confidence is low in the Magpies camp.

Sunderland also have a superb recent record against their local foes with six wins from their last seven meetings stretching back to 2012.

Prediction: Sunderland 1-0 Newcastle
