West Ham United grabbed a 1-0 win over bottom of the table Sunderland on Saturday at the London Stadium after a late goal by Winston Reid.
The Hammers have struggled at the start of the season, but took their second straight win on Saturday after a goal by centre back Winston Reid deep into stoppage time. Manager Slaven Bilic thought that the win was well-deserved as they had several chances to take the lead throughout the game.
“It was very dramatic and an important game for both teams,” Bilic said.
“It was not a goal from the training sessions as I thought Winston would be inside the box. It was a crucial decision from Payet and Noble to get the ball outside the box and find Reidy in a good position.
“It was a great decision from the player. You have to be a bit lucky when you score that kind of a goal and it was crucial for us.
“I thought the first half hour was the best football we have played for a long time. We were passing the ball well and were winning the second balls. We were creating chances and getting the ball to Dimi and Manu.
“We had enough chances to be two up but we couldn’t score a goal. They had five good minutes before half-time but in the second half it was an open game.
“The last 15 minutes we pushed more and changed the system by adding another striker in there.
“We managed to score in the very last minute and no-body can say after the game that we didn’t deserve to win it.”
