Sunderland arrive at the London Stadium this afternoon with history very much against them in games against the Hammers.
We have not been beaten by the Black Cats in six outings and the visitors have won only once in the lat 11 away games to us – losing no less than eight times.
Sunderland have won just one of their last 11 away Premier League games against the Hammers, losing eight times and we have kept more home clean sheets against the Black Cats than against any other Premier League opposition and haven’t conceded in any of their last three.
However, the downside to all of this is that David Moyes is unbeaten in his last 12 Premier League meetings against West Ham (W8 D4), not losing since April 2007 when manager of Everton (0-1 at Upton Park).
West Ham are looking to record back-to-back wins for the first time since the end of April.
No team has conceded more times in the opening 15 minutes of the first half than Sunderland this season (3), while West Ham have conceded the most in the opening 15 minutes of the second half .
