Mignolet confident Sunderland can handle West Ham physical threat

Sunderland goalkeeper Simon Mignolet says they can handle West Ham United's physical threat.

Mignolet says that should not cause too much anxiety in the red-and-white ranks for they are more than capable of competing.

The Belgian said: "We know how Sam Allardyce shapes up his team and we know what we are going to come up against.

"There is a balance between focusing on these things and at the same time making sure you do not dwell on them.

"I'm sure that, in training this week, we'll be working on how to defend against their style of play.

"It's nothing to worry about too much."
