And they were all feeling optimistic about making it seven-in-a-row against their arch rivals.

Ben Rowell, Gary Easton and Joe Rowell said they expected a 2-1 Sunderland win, with Fabio Borini bagging a couple of goals.

Michelle Barraclough and Ian Wake were just as confident and went for the same scoreline. When asked when Sunderland would win, they answered "absolutely"?
