Sunderland: Twitter reacts as Moyes issues three full debuts for Boro derby

Today’s Premier League action kicks off at 1.30pm in the form of the Tees-Wear derby.

Indeed, Sunderland play hosts to local rivals Middlesbrough in today’s early kick off at the Stadium of Light and it appears David Moyes is hoping three of his summer signings can help the Black Cats claim some bragging rights – not to mention three points.

Prodigious winger Adnan Januzaj, who famously bagged two against Sunderland on his full Premier League debut in 2013 – handed to him by none other than David Moyes – featured as a substitute against Manchester City last weekend but now makes his first start for the Wearsiders.

It’s a similar situation for Paddy McNair, also arriving from Manchester United, after coming off the bench and unfortunately scoring an own goal at the Etihad on the opening day of the season.

Likewise, famed Chelsea flop Papy Djilbodji has also been given the nod at the heart of defence, with Lamine Kone a notable absentee after reportedly rejecting a contract offer from the Black Cats, to make his first ever Sunderland appearance.

With tensions high and much expected from today’s game, Twitter’s had plenty to say on Moyes’ latest call-ups. Here are some of the best responses from social media:
