Johnson happy to be Toon hate figure

Adam Johnson admits he must be the most hated man in Newcastle after his late goal condemned Alan Pardew's side to a fourth successive derby defeat for the first time in their history.

The Sunderland winger, who scored in the two previous 3-0 wins over the Magpies at St James' Park, struck in the 90th minute to settle a rip-roaring encounter which might have gone either way until his intervention.

Three years in a row - they must hate me here, but I'm delighted.

Three wins here and three clean sheets. We can't ask for much more.

I was a bit disappointed as I should have scored earlier on so if I had missed that one I would have been gutted tonight. I took my time and set myself and thankfully it went in.

– Johnson speaking to Sky Sports 1.

Carrick backs Falcao to hit the goal trail

Michael Carrick has backed Radamel Falcao to hit the goal trail and spearhead Manchester United's title charge.

United were held at Villa Park on Saturday, despite the hosts having Gabby Agbonlahor sent off with 25 minutes left.

Christian Benteke had put Villa ahead against the run of play before Falcao scored his second United goal to level.

He's scored so many goals over the years and you feel when he gets the chance he'll score.

It was a terrific header, so I'm pleased for him.

After being out for a bit that's him back and hopefully he can go on a bit of a streak now.
