Adrian wants to silence Black Cats' roar

Hammers keeper looking forward to taking on old boss Big Sam on Saturday
Adrian is looking forward to coming up against his old boss Sam Allardyce when West Ham United lock horns with Sunderland on Saturday.
Big Sam was the man who brought the Hammers’ No13 to English football back in the summer of 2013, and as such the Spanish stopper feels a debt of gratitude to the Black Cats’ boss.
However, that will be put to one side at the Boleyn Ground this weekend as he looks for a vital three points in West Ham’s quest to move back into the top six.
He said: “I have many reasons to thank Sam Allardyce because he brought me to West Ham United.
“He went to Seville to watch me in some games before he signed me and Sunderland need to work hard to save their situation in the Premier League.
“After Saturday I hope they can keep their Premier League position because I have appreciation for Sam.
“For us every game in the Premier League is important, but this is especially important because we didn’t get the three points in our last league game [at Norwich] and we need another three points urgently to stay near the top of the table.”
Adrian is likely to return to the team after watching on from the sidelines as the Hammers took Blackburn apart in the FA Cup last weekend – and he says that result will give the Londoners plenty of confidence as they return to league action.

He added: “We are playing at home with our fans behind us, so I think we have a lot of confidence after the FA Cup game at Blackburn.
“It was a great game on Sunday, we played so well, and when you have time to score one more goal you need to score.
“We need to keep going like that in the FA Cup, but also to get the three points in the next game."
