    West Ham United FC V Sunderland

    Post  Admin on Sat 22 Oct 2016, 10:54 am



    West Ham will be hoping to improve on their poor home form when bottom-of-the-league Sunderland visit the London Stadium on Saturday.
    The Hammers have yet to settle in to their new surroundings since leaving the Bolyen Ground, taking just four points from a possible 12 and conceding eight goals. 
    However, they did secure their first win in six Premier League games at Crystal Palace last week, which eased some of the pressure on Slaven Bilic.

    His opposite number, David Moyes, could do with a similar boost this weekend as Sunderland are the only Premier League without win this season. 

    Team news

    Aaron Cresswell is suspended for West Ham after picking up two bookable offences on his return from injury against Palace.
    Andy Carroll was back in light training but has suffered a setback in his recovery from a knee injury. 
    Sam Byram, Gokhan Tore, Diafra Sakho and Arthur Masuaku are all out.
    Defenders Lamine Kone and Patrick van Aanholt are fit for Sunderland.
    Kone missed last weekend's 2-0 defeat at Stoke with a hamstring problem, while Van Aanholt lasted just 40 minutes before having to leave the field with an adductor strain.
    Goalkeeper Vito Mannone (fractured elbow) and midfielder Sebastian Larsson (knee) are back in light training, while winger Adnan Januzaj is expected to join them next week and Jason Denayer, Jan Kirchhoff and Lee Cattermole are not far behind, leaving striker Fabio Borini (groin) as the only long-term absentee.

    Match stats

    West Ham are unbeaten in six Premier League fixtures against Sunderland (W3 D3).
    Sunderland have won just one of their last 11 away Premier League games against the Hammers, losing eight times (D2). This is their first game at the London Stadium.
    Jermain Defoe made 74 Premier League appearances for West Ham between 2001 and 2003. He's scored six times in the Premier League against his former club since leaving. West Ham boss Bilic scored one of his two Premier League goals against Sunderland for the Hammers in December 1996.

    These two sides have used the most players this season in the Premier League, with Sunderland fielding 26 different players to West Ham's 24.
    West Ham are looking to record back-to-back wins for the first time since the end of April.
    No team has conceded more times in the opening 15 minutes of the first half than Sunderland this season (three), while West Ham have conceded the most in the opening 15 minutes of the second half (four).

    Merson's prediction

    Sunderland are struggling, and West Ham had a really good result at Palace and played superbly in the first half.
    I can't see anything different here. It's the perfect game for them to get back-to-back wins for the first time this season, with Sunderland bottom of the league without winning a game. But West Ham have to get through the first 20 minutes positively.
    Sunderland have had a lot of injuries to be fair, you've got to feel sorry for them, they haven't had a lot of luck so far. 
    PAUL PREDICTS: 3-0

    Happy with the first half especially the first 25 min but then let them in the game , I think the game will open up in the 2nd and they will come out fighting now they know they can move the ball around between them selves

    Back to Back Win`s , Two clean sheets - That will have given the team a massive boast ahead of two tough Games against Chelsea Wednesday and Everton Saturday and we are now 3 games unbeaten ! 

    And I hear that all being well that come the Stoke game we will have Sakho back which will be a another big boast to the team .... Things are finally starting to look good again for West Ham Smile

    Good game which I enjoyed however we are not out of the woods yet.
    Like to see the statistics on our attempts at goal and how many were on target.
    Seems to me we can't hit the target.

    If you don't shoot you can't hit the target. That was our biggest problem yesterday

    Enjoyed the first 20 odd minutes and was thinking "comfortable win"  After that though the confidence ebbed away and all I could see was the little runt scoring their winner. Thankfully though our back three stood firm, coercing the little shit into diving and receiving a yellow. cheesey grin  

    Winston's last gasp goal of course brought rapturous celebrations, and rightly so.  But at the end of the day, we all know that this sort of thing won't happen every week.  

    According to the BBC Charlie, we had 20 shots, 3 on target.

    Up next Everton.  We broke the duck there last season but need to up our game to get a win this. For a start, will be fantastic to have Cresswell back ...... COYI

    Agree with that. When FA cup comes, we will see if we have the resources for that. We are not ready for a cup now.
