Amanda Staveley and Newcastle United co-owners have reacted to the 3-0 win over bitter rivals Sunderland.

The Magpies won 3-0 courtesy of Alexander Isak's brace and an own goal by Dan Ballard. It was the first Tyne-Wear derby for almost eight years and the first United have won since 2011 - ending their nine-match winless run.

Eddie Howe's side took the lead in the 35th minute when Joelinton's cross was turned into his own net by Ballard. An error by Pierre Ekwah less than 60 minutes after half-time saw Miguel Almiron unselfishly set up Isak for 2-0.

Isak then wrote his name into derby folklore with a second from the penalty spot after Ballard brought down Anthony Gordon.

Staveley recorded Isak's spot-kick and could be hearing " ------- get in! Well done Alex" as the Swede sent Anthony Patterson the wrong way.

After the victory, Jamie Reuben also took to social media and said: "Delighted today for our team, supporters and OUR city!!! HWTL."

Mehrdad Ghodoussi simply posted a video of the 6,000 Newcastle fans twirling their scarves in the away end along with the caption: "Howay the lads."

While bragging rights is the main takeaway, Newcastle did advance into the fourth round of the FA Cup for the first time under Eddie Howe after previous third round defeats to Cambridge United and Sheffield Wednesday.

The draw takes place on Monday night.
