Liverpool defeat Black Cats to stay in title race

AFP, LONDON

Nikica Jelavic deflected in a Tom Huddlestone free-kick early in the second half to level the scores, but a 54th-minute own-goal by James Chester gave the Hammers victory.

“We were absolutely magnificent,” West Ham manager Sam Allardyce said. “It’s been a tight few games, and swings and roundabouts have happened. I suppose we had a bit of fortune as the referee could have given a handball on Mohamed Diame for the penalty we got, but if he hasn’t seen that it’s definitely a sending-off for Allan McGregor.”
