The Wear-Tyne derby will kick-off at midday on Sunday - but with both teams hanging near to the bottom of the table, who’s going to win?

Steve McLaren’s Newcastle secured their first win of the season in style at the weekend, beating Norwich 6-2 at St James’s Park– while the Black Cats lost 1-0 away to West Brom.

It was the team’s first match under Sam Allardyce, who joined the club following Dick Advocaat’s departure.
