Flashback: Hammers downed

Henderson goal sees off United.

Jordan Henderson lit up a bitter afternoon on Wearside with a flash of brilliance to earn his side maximum points against West Ham United back in 2010.

The England international netted the only goal of the game just after the half-hour, slamming home Asamoah Gyan's cross for his first goal of the season.

Rock-bottom West Ham put up a brave resistance but they could do nothing about Henderson's stunner, which moved Sunderland to seventh position in the Barclays Premier League.
