Fabio Borini and Wahbi Khazri ruin David Moyes' skepticism

21 April 2017

West Ham, with 37 points, are virtually safe but Sunderland, with only two points from their last eight games, remain nine points short of safety with six games left.

"Are you watching David Moyes", they sang as Khazri, a Tunisia playmaker starting his first game since October, performed his party piece, namely scoring direct from a corner to equalise André Ayew's early opener.

The Sunderland manager's arrival on the touchline in the 20th minute of Saturday's home 2-2 draw against West Ham was greeted with a chorus of boos and chants of "we want Moyesy" out from the South Stand.

Andre Ayew was determined to take the positives out of West Ham United's 2-2 Premier League draw at Sunderland.

After Borini's late leveler, West Ham finished with ten men after Sam Byram was dismissed in the fifth minute of stoppage time after being shown a second yellow card. Permission to use quotations from this article is granted subject to appropriate credit being given to as the source.

"In our situation, we can only get out of it together, not individually".

The Swede was sent off for serious foul play after a late challenge on Ander Herrera late in the first half, the Black Cats trailing 1-0 at the time.

"But it's been harder than previous times (escaping relegation) - we have not been at our level, we have not been as united a group as in previous seasons, and that's probably been the problem".

"The support have been fantastic and when a manger's not doing well, a team's not doing well they deserve to take their frustrations out on somebody". "He hit the ground bad but I just think he has concussed himself and hopefully it won't be as bad as we first feared". We are a team.

Bilic said: "There is no pointing fingers". "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".

"Disappointed more than anything else, to concede a late was always disappointing", Collins said. "We were disappointed with both goals, but not disappointed generally with the play".

In particular, Bilic absolved Randolph of blame for Khazri's freak strike. It was from Khazri on his return to the side, as he picked the ball out of the air before taking it around Collins. Having already allowed Khazri's corner to clear him and drop inside his far post, he then fumbled a high ball and punched it straight to Borini to hand him a second equaliser on a plate.
