Borini gives Sunderland lifeline by clinching West Ham draw

Tellingly, when Khazri scored Moyes sat with his arms folded while the rest of Sunderland's bench applauded.

Victor Anichebe is determined to help Sunderland's fight against relegation, but has urged his team not to become too predictable on his return.

Swansea is two points behind Hull in the third relegation place after a fifth loss in six games.

"That's as positive as I've felt after a game for a long time, and if we have to start with a draw, we'll start with a draw".

Moyes, meanwhile, insists that he wants to stay and rebuild the club.

- Wahbi Khazri's goal was the first to come direct from a corner since Ben Watson for Watford against Manchester City in January 2016. Khazri's corner was nice and he generally looked bright and inventive throughout the game.

"I train hard every day and I do extra work at home with a personal trainer because I feel I need to do more, and this is the moment to pay back". Subs - Nordtveit 5, Calleri 5.

The Italian scored two minutes after replacing the concussed Billy Jones, who was carried from the pitch while being given oxygen. Collins makes an intelligent run and he gets a flick into the corner.

West Ham nearly made the ideal start. The medics are rightly taking their time and Borini is waiting to come on.

James Collins restored their lead right after the restart but Fabio Borini secured a crucial point late on, Bilić admitted his disappointment but stated overall it was a fair result on Wearside. He comes to catch the ball and drops it.

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. (BYRAM) And West Ham will play the last five minutes or so with ten men as Byram is shown his second yellow for a late challenge on Januzaj.

Rooted at the bottom of the league with just 21 points, David Moyes side picked up their first point in four games.

There was a bit of dash against West Ham United - redundant in the context of their league position - but Saturday was also notable for a section of the ground railing against the manager, jeering on each occasion he strode towards his technical...
