It`s a trip to the north-east this Easter weekend for West Ham United, with the Hammers set to take on Sunderland.

Ahead of the game we`ve taken the opportunity to delve into the history and form books to reveal some fascinating facts.

? The last 7 Premier League meetings between the sides have seen Sunderland fail to register a win.

? But when it comes to the last 7 fixtures between the two sides at the Stadium of Light, Sunderland are unbeaten in 7 of the last 9 fixtures, winning 3 and drawing 4.

? If West Ham win this fixture it will be the first league double the Hammers have achieved against the Black Cats since the 2008 / 2009 season.

? The victory over Swansea City, last weekend, ended a run of 5 straight defeats for West Ham United.

? The 1-0 win over Swansea City was West Ham`s first clean-sheet in 11 Premier League fixtures.

? This season, West Ham United have lost 16 Premier League games, twice as many as they lost in the whole of last season.
