West Ham have gotten off to an inconsistent start to the Premier League campaign this year under Slaven Bilic, with the Croat already feeling a bit of pressure from some quarters.
The Hammers were looking to improve following a dismal start to life at their new home last season, but so far it’s looked a similar pattern of form, and they are once again not where they want to be in the Premier League table.
Our landlord thinks the Hammers need to find some more goals from somewhere, and he thinks the solution could lie with someone already in their squad. That player? Diafra Sakho.
The forward has been out of favour for a while and has had numerous off field issues preventing him from getting a run in the team. However, he looks to be back in the fold now, and with Javier Hernandez hardly setting the world alight and Andy Carroll only just back from injury again, Sakho could be the man for Bilic.
He is a proven scorer in the Premier League, and on his day has the ability to cause problems for plenty of defences in the top flight. He’s good in the air, has a turn of pace, and is a calm and composed finisher when on form.
If Sakho can rediscover his best form, he could be the answer West Ham have been looking for.
