  1. Goodbye

    West Ham 1-0 Sunderland

    Right, we will leave it there for you. Don't forget you can keep across all the Premier League and Football League action right here on the BBC Sport website. 

    Don't go changing. 

  2. 'Not converting chances is costly'

    West Ham 1-0 Sunderland

    Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce on BT Sport: "The bottom line is we haven’t scored at least two after 14 opportunities. At least three or four really good ones. Not converting chances is costly. It’s a victory lost on chances created.

    "Getting back in the game and getting the draw was at least what we deserved. It makes such a difference. I can’t knock the players though.

    "We’ve got to get results. We have to catch up as we have no chance otherwise. We’ve got to get over this trait of performing but not winning."

  3. 'The celebration had to be done'

    West Ham 1-0 Sunderland

    West Ham goalscorer Michail Antonio on BT Sport: "It was hard-fought, they threw everything at us. It was a good clean sheet and great to get the three points.

    "Randomly, I started practising it in training yesterday - cutting in on my right-foot. I put in five in five with no keeper, but I managed to do it against a keeper today.

    "The celebration came to me when we were in hotel room with the lads yesterday.  They didn’t think I’d do it but I said if I scored today it’s definitely going to be done."

    West Ham 1-0 Sunderland

    One for our woodwork friends. 

    Our pals at Opta tell us that with the woodwork hit three times today, it was the joint-most in a Premier League game this season.  

  5. 'Sam leaves with half a smile'

    West Ham 1-0 Sunderland

    David Pleat

    Former Tottenham boss on BBC Radio 5 live

    "They could easily have had a point, Sunderland played with great spirit and I'd say Sam Allardyce will have half a smile on his face because they played with great pressure.

    "West Ham were fractured in many things they did and Dimitri Payet never really exploded, Slaven Bilic will be happy with the three points.

    "Overall a slightly disappointing game in that it was windy, the pitch was a little bit bobbly and Sunderland were fighting to get back in it for a long time."

  6. A chance missed?

    West Ham 1-0 Sunderland

    Sam Allardyce will curse his side's inability not to get something from the game, they are still second from bottom but only a point behind Norwich, who are 17th and are at league leaders Leicester later. Newcastle don't play this weekend. 

  7. FULL-TIME

    West Ham 1-0 Sunderland

    Not a Premier League classic by any means but West Ham won't care. Slaven Bilic's side are now unbeaten in 13 home games in all competitions. They have one defeat in their last eight games. 

  8. FULL-TIME

    West Ham 1-0 Sunderland

    Sunderland will feel hard done by but that win for West Ham sees them move into the top five in the Premier League. They are now on 43 points, a total they have never reached after 27 Premier League games. 

  9. FULL-TIME

    West Ham 1-0 Sunderland

    Mark Noble at full-time

    The last attack sees Sunderland scoop the ball high into the air where Adrian can easily claim. All over. 

  10. Post update

    West Ham 1-0 Sunderland

    One last chance for Sunderland, the attack breaks down as the Hammers pack the centre of the pitch. There are numerous chances to get into decent positions from both sides but the final ball has been poor. 

  11. Post update

    West Ham 1-0 Sunderland

    Sunderland are going for it now. All up which leaves them exposed at the back, but Michail Antonio mis-controls the ball with a chance to break clear. 

  12. 'Rabona or Ribena?'

    West Ham 1-0 Sunderland

    David Pleat

    Former Tottenham boss on BBC Radio 5 live

    "He'd done brilliantly up to that point. Whether he got carried away with, is it the rabona or Ribena? 

    "He was in a great position. He's done quite well at times, Wahbi Khazri, I wasn't aware of him before he signed. Sunderland's scouting methods seem to be quite effective."

  13. Post update

    West Ham 1-0 Sunderland

    Looks like Sunderland's Seb Larsson might come on now. They have missed his delivery today. Wahbi Khazri has not been at the races in that department. 

    Three minutes of stoppage time. 

  14. Post update

    West Ham 1-0 Sunderland

    The ball is crossed deep into the West Ham box but the Hammers defence clear. Sunderland are short at the back as the hosts look for Andy Carroll, but he commits a foul. End to end, now. 

  15. Post update

    West Ham 1-0 Sunderland

    Not much time now, this has been a scrappy game and Sunderland will think they've deserved a point. Here they come....

  16. Post update

    West Ham 1-0 Sunderland

    Patrick van Aanholt and Wahabi Khazri are causing a nuisance down the left and it falls to the Tunisian, who's in a great position on the byline, tries a Rabona and completely misses it. What was he playing at?

    Big Sam will be fuming. I'm fuming! 

  17. Get Involved

    West Ham 1-0 Sunderland

    Matt Harding: How are Sunderland still behind in this game? How many chances do they want?!

    James Foster: Rodwell's going to be kicking himself after this match.

    Andrew Priestley: Sunderland are spurning chances left, right and centre in this second half. This is exactly why they are in a relegation battle.

  18. Final five

    West Ham 1-0 Sunderland

    Final five minutes, what have you got Sunderland?

  19. Post update

    West Ham 1-0 Sunderland

    Sunderland aren't done here, though. Andy Carroll is back defending a free-kick to concede a corner. What a waste though. Wahbi Khazri hits it too long, and it's been a feature of the Tunisian's game today. He's lacked accuracy with his deliveries. 

    Andy Carroll
  20. Post update

    West Ham 1-0 Sunderland

    Great build-up once more from Dimitri Payet as he bursts forward, he plays the ball to Cheikhou Kouyate, but the Senagalese midfielder cannot find the on-rushing Aaron Cresswell. Moments later Payet flashes a shot wide of the post. Vito Mannone was rooted in the Sunderland goal.
