.As Sunderland Humiliate Newcastle In Derby –
Charlie Adam scored either side of half-time as Stoke claimed their first ever English Premier League win over Manchester United.
Adam put the hosts in front with a deflected effort, then smashed home an excellent second to settle the 2-1 victory after Robin van Persie had levelled straight after the break in their English Premier League, EPL match on Saturday.
It was the first time United had tasted defeat at the Britannia Stadium too, their eighth reverse of the campaign dealing a savage blow to their hopes of securing a UEFA Champions League berth for next season.
Earlier on Saturday, Alan Pardew was left alone to face a furious backlash as Newcastle succumbed to another humbling derby defeat by Sunderland.
Fans incensed by the club’s decision to sell Yohan Cabaye and not replace him vented their anger on Pardew as the Black Cats cruised to a second successive 3-0 victory at St James’ Park.
Sunderland’s third derby victory on the trot was secured by first-half goals from Fabio Borini and Adam Johnson, who struck for the seventh time in as many games, and Jack Colback’s late strike.
