Fight erupts between fans in Sunderland end as Newcastle cheekily mock their rivals on Twitter

A fight erupts between fans in the Sunderland end as Newcastle United cheekily mock their rivals with a series of posts on Twitter.

Footage has surfaced with it showing a small group of supporters clashing in the South Stand, though it’s not clear as to what started it.

It came as Sunderland fell to a 3-0 defeat, a result that sees Newcastle win their first derby since 2011 having lost six of the previous seven.

And it was with thanks to Dan Ballard’s own goal and Alexander Isak’s double which them beat the error-prone Black Cats at the Stadium of Light on Saturday lunchtime.

The first goal came just as the first half was coming to an end, a powerful run from Joelinton down the left and he fired the ball across goal, only for Ballard to put it into his own net after being under pressure by Isak.

A quickfire start in the second half saw Newcastle two up. Almirón pressed high and won the ball inside the Sunderland box, it is then played to Isak who sent the ball into the top corner.

Then on 88 minutes, Gordon made his way past a Sunderland player, Ballard brought him to the ground with no intention of playing the ball, giving away a spot kick to Newcastle. Isak made now mistake.

Sunderland AFC: Patterson, Hume, Ballard, O’Nien, Alese, Neil, Ekwah, Pritchard, Bellingham, Clarke, Rusyn.

Subs not used: Bishop, Triantis, Pembele, Seelt, Ba, Aouchiche, Rigg, Burstow, Hemir.

Subs not used: Karius, Dummett, Lascelles, Ritchie, Krafth, Hall, Livramento, Parkinson.

Newcastle continued the taunts towards Sunderland on Twitter, first they said ‘No swapping shirts today’.

In another post, it them upload a photo taken of the team with the away end in the background (much to the annoyance of Sunderland fans staying behind).

And then with some cheeky editing, they had a play around with the wording of one of Sunderland’s stands.

Oh, and not forgetting their ‘The North East is Black and White’ post. All of which went viral, and no doubt Newcastle will continue to post as the days go on.

Newcastle manager Eddie Howe speaking on ITV: “It feels great [to win], I never worried about the draw I always thought it was a great draw – as long as we won it.

“We handled the occasion well, were brave with the ball and were very composed. We didn’t let the crowd take over and we handled everything really well in the first half.

“I think we are still a bit off our best but it was a step in the right direction, hopefully the forward momentum can continue.

“If you look at the size of the games we’ve had this year this was nothing new. We’ve handled big occasions really well this year.

“We had to do the little bits right today and that’s what happened. It keeps us in an important competition and that brings hope.

“The Premier League doesn’t get easy with fixtures so this game was important.”

On Joelinton going off with an injury: “He looks like he’s got a bit of a knock.”

Sunderland manager Michael Beale speaking to ITV: “I thought the two goals in the second half were poor, the one at the beginning and the one at the end.

“The first half our shape was good but we were untidy when we got the ball back.

“But the second half we got to the worst possible start.

“In the second half, Pritch was unlucky with hitting the bar and the goalkeeper makes one fantastic save.

“The difference between the two games was experience and know-how.

“It won’t be good words for the dans to hear right now but it’s the reality for us right now.

“This result today could help us in the Championship campaign for sure.”

Sky Sports’ Roy Keane on ITV: “Sunderland had a go, at half-time they were still in the game. But from 2-0 it was game over. We saw the quality, pace and the power of Newcastle, who feel they have recharged their batteries.

“It was a really good game for Newcastle to have today to reset their season with a 3-0 win over Sunderland. They were really comfortable.

“There was a lack of quality from Sunderland who gifted some goals to them, which doesn’t help. They are young players, they will learn from their own results but when you’re playing on the edge of your own box, it’s madness.

“You’re under pressure, you’re trying to get back in the game and he [Ekwah] is trying to beat him [on the edge of the box]? They were trying to put them under pressure using energy and then it’s game over.

“Young players have to learn the game, but this is utter madness. The amount of goals we see on the TV from defenders taking chances, all weekend we’ve seen it and we saw it in such a big game here.

“That will define a young player’s career, decision-making. Certainly a minute into the second half against your big rivals, you don’t try and beat a man on the edge of your own box.”
