West Ham United will be looking to return to winning ways in the Premier League this evening, when they take on Sunderland at home.
The Hammers will head into the clash at the Boleyn Ground on the back of a 3-0 defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in North London.
Prior to that game, Sam Allardyce’s side had gone down 1-0 to Chelsea at home and are now without a win in any competition since January 25.
Meanwhile, Sunderland will head into the encounter placed just a point above the bottom three and on the back of a 4-0 home loss to Aston Villa at the Stadium of Light.
Dick Advocaat is the new man in charge of the Black Cats following the dismissal of Gus Poyet on Monday, and he will be keen on starting out with a win.
It promises to be an interesting game at Boleyn Ground in London this evening, and this is how West Ham and Sunderland will line up:
West Ham United XI: Adrian, Jenkinson, Collins, Kouyate, Cresswell, Song, Noble, Nolan (c), Jarvis, Downing, Sakho
Subs: Jaaskelainen, Demel, O'Brien, Poyet, Amalfitano, Nene, Cole
Sunderland XI: Pantilimon, Reveillere, van Aanholt, O'Shea (c), Brown, Larsson, Gomez, Rodwell, Defoe, Wickham, Fletcher
Subs: Jones, Bridcutt, Johnson, Graham, Vergini, Watmore, Mannone
