It’s Newcastle United v Sunderland in the big north-east inter-city derby.

The Telegraph reports:

Newcastle vs Sunderland: Adam Johnson joins Alan Pardew in calls for calm – The Black Cats winger hopes tempers will not boil over during Sunday’s derby, but is aware that may be wishful thinking

Luke Edwards reiterates the call for calm:

Says calming Johnson:

‘It’s better when you win away,’ says the player who has scored in both of Sunderland’s back-to-back 3-0 victories at St James’ Park… ‘Afterwards, you realise you’ve done it, the music is turned up and you’ve won the game. You get on the bus and you can see everybody there is fuming. That’s the best part. It just makes it a better feeling winning in front of their fans.’

Such are the facts…
