Sunderland 2-2 West Ham: Moyes's super-sub

Sunderland salvaged a 2-2 draw against West Ham thanks to Fabio Borini's late equaliser, but the Premier League's bottom club remain in severe danger of relegation.

Sunderland have been handed a lifeline by Wahbi Khazri from absolutely nowhere.

Khazri continued to lead the Black Cats' charge up to half-time before James Collins silenced the Stadium of Light with a header on 47 minutes.

Sunderland's Fabio Borini scores his side's second goal of the game during the Premier League soccer match between Watford and Swansea City at Vicarage Road, Watford, England. The beleaguered Moyes found himself a target for the boo boys as his afternoon began in familiar fashion.

Despite having a nine-point cushion over the teams in the relegation zone with five games left in the season, the West Ham boss believes his side still need to be careful and need more points to feel safe in the Premier League.

Jordan Pickford made a good save to keep out Manuel Lanzini's free-kick in only the second minute but it did not take long for West Ham to find the breakthrough.

John O'Shea, back in the team after being given compassionate leave following the death of his father, headed a ninth-minute Khazri free-kick straight at Republic of Ireland team-mate Darren Randolph as the Black Cats attempted to rebuild, but their progress was initially laboured.

Even so, Moyes was not allowed to enjoy the moment, with some supporters singing "Are you watching David Moyes?", a reference to his reluctance to select the Tunisia worldwide in recent months. We pushed, we tried hard but ultimately we just couldn't get a win.

There was already a funereal atmosphere and when Sunderland defender Billy Jones was stretchered off while being given oxygen following a collision with Arthur Masuaku the gloom deepened even further.

After a lengthy stoppage, Jones was carried from the pitch and subbed in the 88th minute, with 10 minutes of added-on time played.
