Sunderland ran out 3-0 winners in a stunning Tyne-Wear derby. First half goals from Fabio Borini and Adam Johnson were added to by Jack Colback’s strike in the final 45 minutes. Needless to say, one set of fans were much happier than the other! Here is how Twitter reacted to the game!
Cabaye’s presence being missed
#NUFC look poor at the moment. Definitely missing Cabaye in the middle.

Borini opens the scoring from the penalty spot
From what I have seen this year, Borini will return to Liverpool as a very valuable squad member. A real threat. — Stephen Smith (@GisGoos12) February 1, 2014
It baffles me that Jozy Altidore plays every game for Sunderland, play Borini through the middle. — مهند (@7anoudii) February 1, 2014
Adam Johnson at it again! The winger makes it 2-0
Echo what I said about Adam Johnson last week as well – when he’s confident and playing games he’s a really good player.

@OffsideLiam I second that!

Newcastle’s fans less than happy at HT
Adam Johnson almost makes it three!
A lovely move from Johnson on right, full of confidence, jinks inside and hits the left post. Shola misses with free header just before. — George Caulkin (@CaulkinTheTimes) February 1, 2014
What a run from Johnson, so unlucky to hit the post. I thought it was a bit silly when people were talking about England, but on this form..

Sunderland fans sing Johnson’s praises
When he’s focused and on form there are few better, more dangerous wingers in the Premiership than Adam Johnson.. #SAFC

The nerves kick in…
But Colback puts the game beyond doubt!
Colback scores…. No comeback for Newcastle….. — Nemanja Gautić (@Gaublueblooded) February 1, 2014
