The Magpies face local rivals Sunderland on Saturday (12.45pm kick-off) in what is set to be a thrilling match, and our betting partner 138.com brings Newcastle fans the best odds ahead of the Barclays Premier League fixture at St. James' Park.

 

Match Odds

Newcastle were held to a goalless draw away at Norwich during the week, a game United controlled and on another day could have won comfortably. Frenchman Loic Remy was impressive on Tuesday night but will be missing this weekend after picking up a red card at Carrow Road.

The Magpies will be without Yohan Cabaye, who has left for Paris Saint-Germain, but supporters could get their first look at new signing Luuk De Jong.

Newcastle have lost their last three home matches in all competitions, but a win in the Tyne-Wear derby could propel them into the Premier League's top seven.

The last time these two sides met, Sunderland won 2-1 at the Stadium of Light last October, and the Black Cats were 1-0 midweek winners against Stoke City.
