I'm a proven match victor, David Moyes tells Sunderland boo-boys

West Ham striker Jonathan Calleri reveals Mark Noble’s words of encouragement

Sunderland are winless in their last eight matches too, although they did end a seven-match goal drought against the Hammers before Fabio Borini's 91st-minute equaliser rescued a point. Which players are happy?

Cattermole himself had a hard day, booked with less than a minute on the clock after he fouled Andre Ayew, as the Ghana worldwide prepared to shoot from the edge of the area.

"To be fair, the manager has played me in the last three games, and that's three games in 10 days for me". I don't appreciate losing every Saturday but we pick it up.

"The only real occasion was just after half-time when they gave a free-kick against Denayer which I wasn't sure was a free-kick".

I'd like to think that Khazri has now made himself undroppable for the Arsenal game next weekend, but nothing would surprise me at this stage. The body feels good, and fitness and sharpness come with games.

"We score goals as a team and we concede goals as a team, we win or draw or lose as a team so I'm not going to point the finger at one player".

West Ham arrived in the North-East looking to record back-to-back victories for the first time since mid-December, in order to ease their own relegation fears.

Just as worrying, Borini's brazen celebration in front of his manager and his post-match interview which talked of discord and a lack of unity in the dressing room suggests there are wider issues than just bad results.

Hammers goalkeeper, Darren Randolph, appeared to be at fault for both Sunderland goals, but the Hammers boss was quick to deflect the blame away from the Republic of Ireland stopper: "We are a team, we are scoring goals together, we are conceding goals as a team".

"It was nice to have Wahbi out there with us".

Nothing has really gone right for David Moyes this term and his reputation continues to diminish since leaving Everton back in 2013 to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United. He was involved in all of Sunderland's best attacking moves, and looked to have set up Didier Ndong for a goal midway through the second half, only for the midfielder to blaze over.

"I had to see it again to see where people were, but we sort of got dragged open a bit there".

Fans chanted for him to be sacked for the first time on Saturday, and this during one of their better performances in which they finally scored a goal after 701 minutes without one.
