Classic match

Sunderland 0-1 West Ham United
Premier League
23 November 2008

This date in the calendar has only yielded three league wins for West Ham United, but they were triumphant on their outing seven years ago.

Sunderland were their victims on a Sunday in the north-east as the Hammers ended a seven-game wait for victory.

Valon Behrami scored the only goal of the game, striking a deflected shot beyond home keeper Marton Fulop to settle matters with only 20 minutes played.

This victory came during a mid-season slump in which only one win in twelve games was recorded, but the east Londoners recovered post-Christmas to end the campaign in ninth.
