West Ham ace calls for improvement on outstanding away record

West Ham striker Diafra Sakho has called for the Hammers to improve their current run of huge away victories this season, as reported by the London Evening Standard.

Slaven Bilic’s side have already recorded victories away at Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City this season, which has led to the Hammers currently sitting as high as third in the Premier League.

But Senegal international Diafra Sakho, who scored the Hammers’ second in their 2-1 victory at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday, insists he won’t be completely satisfied until West Ham take maximum points at two other top Premier League grounds.

He said: “I am very happy for the team that we have been able to win at Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City – they were all great performances.

“This is a very long season, though, and now we want victories at Manchester United and Chelsea!”

Sakho has scored 16 goals in 34 first team appearances for West Ham since signing from France outfit FC Metz last summer in a £4million deal.

And the 25-year-old has revealed there is a real belief and motivation within the West Ham camp to win every game they play, which was evident in their fearless approach to their clash with City on Saturday evening.

“Every player has worked so hard for the team and had a big motivation to win the game,” he continued.

“The manager spoke to every player and we knew that we had to give 100 per cent.”

West Ham travel to fellow Premier League high-flyers Leicester City on Tuesday night in the Capital One Cup third round.
