Premier League: Sunderland 2-1 Newcastle (27/10/13)

After an indifferent start to the season, Fabio Borini’s late stunner condemned the Magpies to a second consecutive Tyne-Wear derby defeat. Mathieu Debuchy’s equaliser proved to be in vain after Steven Fletcher had opened the scoring.

The Toon Army were understandably angered as their side succumbed to their rivals once again.
However, the defeat actually proved to be a catalyst for an impressive run of results in November and December.
