5) Shola Ameobi (Newcastle) – 7 Against Sunderland

Shola Ameobi

Known as the “Mackem Slayer” on Tyneside, it is not hard to see why, considering he scored seven in just 16 Tyne-Wear derby appearances for the Magpies.

Ameobi wasn’t exactly the most prolific striker, scoring 78 times in 398 matches during his time at Newcastle, but he always seemed to be on the scoresheet against their fiercest rivals.
