Sunderland fans are hoping to see David Moyes keep the faith with the forward line that finally ended an 11 hour goal drought against West Ham.
Wahbi Khazri made his first start in 7 months against the Hammers and scored direct from a corner in a superb individual display.
Fabio Borini came off the bench to score the equaliser, however, celebrating in front of the dug-out. Post-match he pointed out how successful Sunderland had been last season with himself, Khazri and Jermain Defoe playing as a forward three.
