Sunderland vs Newcastle Possible Lineups, Team News and TV Channel for FA Cup 2023/24


The third round of the FA Cup sees a huge derby clash as Premier League side Newcastle United make the short trip to rivals Sunderland.

Despite playing at a level below the Magpies, the Tyne-Wear derby is not for the faint of heart and the home fans will pack the Stadium of Light.

Newcastle have endured a difficult few weeks following their UEFA Champions League exit, starting 2024 with a 4-2 Premier League defeat against Liverpool.

Team news

Sunderland will go to this match with their strongest squad available as they look to continue their frustrations with Newcastle in 2024.

Jude Bellingham’s younger brother Jobe is a standout name for the Black Cats, with the 18-year-old already scoring four goals this season.

Eddie Howe’s injury list continues to stretch into double figures at the start of 2024 and he will be forced to regroup. The demands of the Premier League mean he will rotate some of the names in the squad with potential starters Matt Ritchie and Javier Manquill.

Sunderland (4-2-3-1):

Patterson (GK) — Hume, O’Nien, Ballard, Alese — Ekwah, Neil — Clarke, Bellingham, Pritchard — Rusyn.

Newcastle (4-3-3): 

Dubravka (GK) — Livramento, Schar, Lascelles, Manquillo — Miley, Longstaff, Guimaraes — Ritchie, Wilson, Hall.
