Slaven Bilic on what he expects from the Sunderland game

Sunderland and West Ham United will face each other in the Premier League this afternoon.

West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic has told the club’s official Twitter page that he is expecting a very tough game against Sunderland this afternoon.

The Hammers will take on the Black Cats away from home at the Stadium of Light in the Premier League in a few hours’ time.

Many observers will back West Ham to pick up the three points, but Bilic has made it clear that there is no room for complacency.

West Ham are third in the Premier League table at the moment, while winless Sunderland currently find themselves rock bottom.

The London outfit have the best away record in the Premier League this campaign, winning all three fixtures and only conceding one goal.

However, the Hammers have never won four consecutive away games in the same Premier League season.

Sunderland have failed to win any of their last 10 league games - the longest current run in the division.
