West Ham – WDLWL
Sunderland – LDLWL
- Sunderland have failed to beat West Ham in their last six meetings.
- You have to go back to 2011 for the last time the Black Cats beat West Ham away from home
- Sunderland are only the second team in top-flight history to fail to win any of their opening eight league games in consecutive seasons
West Ham – The Hammers will have six players out injured for the game including Gokhan Tore, Sam Byram, Arthur Masuaku, Andy Carroll, Andre Ayew and Diafra Sakho. Thei will also be without Aaron Cresswell who misses out through suspension.
Sunderland – Moyes’ side are riddled with injuries but they may expect Lamine Kone to be fit ahead of a late fitness test. Patrick van Aanholt, Jan Kirchhoff, Lee Cattermole, Adnan Januzaj, Fabio Borini, Vito Mannone and Sebastian Larsson are all missing.
