West Ham will be looking to make it two wins on the bounce on Saturday as they visit struggling Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.

Slaven Bilic’s men have been really poor recently but will take confidence from their 1-0 win over fellow relegation battlers Swansea City last Saturday, earned through an excellent strike from Cheikhou Kouyate.

The Hammers will feel as though this is a big opportunity for them to set some distance between themselves and the string of relegation candidates below them, but will be well aware that the Black Cats will not go down without a fight and will hope that the home advantage can help them.

Here’s how we think a combined line-up would look.
