Sunderland were celebrating Premier League survival last May, with a dream scenario transpiring as they did so at Newcastle's expense.

One of these was goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, who sent a gloating tweet out mocking Newcastle's demise.

Right now Pickford's message is not looking too clever at all, with Sunderland's relegation to the Championship inevitable.

Meanwhile Newcastle are on the verge of clinching promotion back to the Premier League.

Pickford has done enough individually to suggest that he will be playing in the top flight next season regardless with a transfer battle emerging for his signature.

Perhaps the Newcastle United players will learn from Pickford's error?
