West Ham ended a run of three straight league defeats with a 3-1 win over luckless Sunderland at Upton Park.

Nolberto Solano made his Hammers debut as a substitute and when his shot hit a post it rebounded off £9million goalkeeper Craig Gordon and dribbled into the net.

West Ham had led with Carlton Cole´s header after just nine minutes and commanded the first half, but the dangerous Kenwyne Jones headed a 52nd-minute equaliser. The home side survived when Grant Leadbitter´s shot was brilliantly pushed onto a post by Robert Green and Craig Bellamy netted a third in injury time.
