Diafra Sakho West Ham UnitedSTAR MAN
Diafra Sakho
West Ham have had a flying start to the season and that has mainly been down to the signings Sam Allardyce brought in over the summer. Diafra Sakho was one of them and, since joining, the Senegalese striker has scored seven goals in his first 11 Premier League appearances for The Irons. With a perfect blend of pace and power, the striker will be a tricky customer for Arsenal’s defence at Upton Park.
