Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer has described beleaguered Sunderland as “doomed” – and has tipped Swansea City to run up a cricket score against them tomorrow.

The Black Cats have lost their opening two Premier League games of the season, with seven goals conceded, ahead of the visit of Swansea to the Stadium of Light.

The Swans have impressed so far this season, and comfortably beat Newcastle 2-0 on Saturday.

It is a scoreline Shearer thinks they will better tomorrow against Dick Advocaat’s men.

Writing in his column for the Sun, the former striker said: “Having seen the way Jefferson Montero went about leading the destruction of Newcastle at the weekend, and the way Sunderland are defending, I would suggest the Aussies’ total in the fourth Ashes Test could be in danger.

“Already Sunderland look doomed.”
