West Ham beat Sunderland 1-0 at Upton Park to move into 5th place in the Premier League.

Michail Antonio scored the only goal of the game with a powerful shot from just inside the penalty area that found the bottom corner.

Emmanuel Emenike started his second consecutive game but he failed to replicate the same performance he gave against Blackburn.

To be fair Emenike did not receive the best service and was at times left isolated upfront

West Ham have now won both games with Emenike starting for his new side. The Nigerian international joined on a six-month move last month from Fenerbahce.

The Hammers have now gone 13 games unbeaten at home and are just six points off a top four spot.
