West Ham take on Sunderland on Saturday 27th February, 2016, with kickoff at 12:45. This match is currently being shown LIVE on BT Sport 1.

After the last few seasons they’ve enjoyed, or maybe endured, West Ham fans will be delighted not to be involved in a relegation battle this season, and barring a massive heap of misfortune that isn’t going to change. However, today they are caught up in the tangled net of tribulation that Sunderland, Aston Villa and the rest are stuck in, with this fixture against nineteenth-placed Sunderland.

Sam Allardyce has done all his usual tricks since arriving at the Stadium of Light, but until their win at Old Trafford last week chewing gum and shouting hadn’t provided a huge boost, so he’ll want to continue whatever worked then.
