AVOIDING RELEGATION IS sweet; doing it while condemning your nearest and dearest rivals to the drop in your place must be even sweeter.

Their Premier League status secured for another season, Sunderland fans took the opportunity to rub salt into Newcastle’s wounds this afternoon.

Fans flew a plane over St James’ Park with a none-too-subtle message for the relegated Magpies.

“Auf wiedersehen Prem,” the banner read. “Tyne to go.”

On the pitch, Newcastle lead Tottenham 2-0 at half-time, a scoreline which could see Arsenal overtake Spurs and pip them to second place.
