Sunderland 3-0 Newcastle: Everything You Need To Know

Analysis, and all that.

Sunderland's 3-0 Tyne and Wear derby win has been easily the most discussed and most controversial of any of Newcastle's historic six successive defeats.

Goals from Adam Johnson, Billy Jones (seriously), and Steven Fletcher secured the points for Sunderland, while Aleksandar Mitrovic had a decent chance for the visitors when a fortunate ricochet dropped to his feet in the second half.

There has been a lot said and written about it, particularly from apparently angry and confused Newcastle United supporters. So, being the conscientious chaps that we are on Roker Report, we thought we'd kindly help our black and white brethren just come to terms with what is obviously a totally unprecedented level of losing.

Allow us to extensively tackle all the key points, one at a time, to guide everyone through literally everything they need to know.

Who won the derby?

Sunderland.

Does anyone care if Newcastle thought they deserved more?

No.

You're welcome.
