West Ham will head into the game at the Stadium of Light on the back of a 2-2 draw with Norwich City at the Boleyn Ground.
Slaven Bilic’s side will be determined to get back to winning ways, and the players were training hard in order to do just that on Thursday.
During the session, defender Carl Jenkinson scored a wonderful goal (see video below). The 23-year-old England international right-back joined West Ham on a season-long loan deal from Premier League rivals Arsenal in the summer transfer window.

West Ham are third in the Premier League table at the moment with 13 points from seven matches, just three points behind leaders Manchester United.
The Hammers are aiming for a top-eight finish in the league this season, but perhaps they could end up higher.
