Andre Ayew says West Ham United are determined to protect winning positions

Yellow Sports Brian Jeeves reporting from the Stadium of Light

Hard-tackling Sunderland midfielder Lee Cattermole has heaped praise on teammate Wahbi Khazri after the Tunisia midfielder scored in the 2-2 draw with West Ham on Saturday. "We all know we are Premier League players, we've been playing in the Premier League a long time and surely I don't want to get relegated".

There was a large slice of luck to the winger's opening goal, as he curled the ball straight into the net from a corner. In football there's an alternative opportunity and we've got another opportunity against West Ham. Slight role reversal here as Carroll squares (shanks his shot) the ball to Ayew having picked up the ball from Byram. Well there you go.

His presence is one of the few causes for optimism as the Black Cats as they struggle to beat the drop, but the target man has insisted they must ensure they still vary their play in his absence.

Khazri curled a free-kick over the bar with 19 minutes left, and having turned provider moments later, the winger must have thought he had set up his side's second equaliser.

For the first time in 701 minutes, Sunderland scored a goal.

It was simple enough for Collins as managed to make a free run in from the penalty spot, the Welshman did well to make his way through the crowd and head it into the bottom corner. West Ham are back in front! The medics are rightly taking their time and Borini is waiting to come on.

Two French officials also told Associated Press that the attacker was detained in February for allegedly threatening police. Although many of these parties have existed for decades, they have been emboldened by Brexit and the election of U.S.

The Premier League match between Sunderland and West Ham will not be broadcast on live TV in America.

Sunderland boss David Moyes revealed last week that Pienaar is back in full training, and he could well come into contention for the visit of West Ham tomorrow after the FA rejected the appeal against Seb Larsson's red card.

Jermain Defoe has now failed to score in his last four games against West Ham for Sunderland. As it stands, three points would put Slaven Bilic's side nine points clear of the relegation places with five games to play - a relatively comfortable position at this late stage of the season.

In stoppage time the Hammers were reduced to ten men as Byram was shown a second yellow card for a clumsy foul on Adnan Januzaj, then Anichebe nearly won it for the home side with an attempt that flashed just the wrong side of an upright.

However, unlike Khazri, who has barely had a kick this season, Borini has had plenty of chances to prove himself this term, and has regularly been found wanting.
