Moyes backing Pickford for stardom

Premier League’s busiest goalkeeper Jordan Pickford insists he’ll never join Newcastle United

It's been over 2 months since David Moyes has won a match, and more worringly since the team have scored a goal.

The Tunisian worldwide had been so far off Moyes" radar, he had made only one more start for club than country this season before his reintroduction against the Hammers, so it was somewhat unsurprising to hear a clear refrain form the stands asking "are you watching David Moyes?' as the Sunderland players dusted off celebrations not required since their four-goal first-half blitz at Crystal Palace 70 days previously.

As it stands, three points would put Slaven Bilic's side nine points clear of the relegation places with five games to play - a relatively comfortable position at this late stage of the season.

It was another moment of misfortune in a wretched season for Sunderland fans but they watched their team draw level on 26 minutes thanks to their own slice of luck. The ball came in and looked to be slightly wind assisted and somehow found the top far corner, although questions will be asked why no one was marking the back post and also if a foul should have been given as Victor Anichebe appeared to hold Darren Randolph.

Sunderland manager David Moyes has hailed goalkeeper Jordan Pickford and claimed that he has "every right" to be named as the PFA Young Player of the year.

Two minutes into the second half, Moyes was grim-faced on the touchline once more as Hammers defender Collins glanced Robert Snodgrass' corner wide of Jordan Pickford to restore the visitors' lead.

He was dazed in the aftermath and was taken to hospital for checks but Moyes said the defender is "fine". They had the ball, but they were playing very risky, leaving a lot of space behind.

- West Ham have thrown away a league-high 22 points from leading positions in the Premier League this season.

Having fallen behind to Andre Ayew's early goal, Sunderland equalised through Wahbi Khazri, only to see James Collins put the Hammers back in front.

West Ham United are all but safe and have little other than pride to play for.
