West Ham vs Sunderland by Rahul

West-Ham
VS
Sunderland
West Ham were going through a crisis until he international break and some tactical changes from Slaven Bilic saw them steal a 1-0 victory against Crystal Palace last time around. Now they welcome a struggling Sunderland side to their new home at the Olympic Park with the aim of trying to start building a winning streak there. West Ham have won just 1 out of 4 games, losing 2 of them in their new home; but their recent victory should help build up the motivation of the side. Dimtri Payet, Manuel Lanzini have shown to be building their form with a lot of goals for their sides while Michail Antonio is always a threat for the opposition playing in a wing back position with Bilic's tried 3-5-2 successful formation from last weekend.

 

Sunderland have been in dire straits this campaign with just 2 points from 8 games, it doesn't seem likely that David Moyes has the inspiration to push these boys for a victory. Sunderland have seen them steal scrappy goals here and there particularly with Defoe up front. The defensive unit of the side have been really poor and the injuries they face with the likes of Kone, Denayer, Kirchhoff, Cattermole and van Aanholt all out with injuries. This side doesn't draw inspiration from midfield and wide positions either and injuries to Januzaj, Borini, Larsson; once again showcases that they don't have the depth in the squad to deliver strong results.

 

West Ham should win this one as long as they ensure a strong defensive performance; and all the punters should be going against Sunderland for the entire season.pin
