ST: Diafra Sakho (West Ham)
With Dwight Gayle seemingly misplacing his goalscoring boots this season (a tally of zero in the Premier League), the only other viable option was West Ham’s Diafra Sakho (Andy Carroll, Patrick Bamford and Connor Wickham all have limited game time between them). The Senegalese forward was unstoppable before his season was cut short through injury in April, and after missing the first few games of this campaign due to being arrested not once but twice, Sakho will be keen to repay the faith Bilic has shown in him. Hammers fans will be feeling optimistic about the future with their star striker returning – he has notched three goals this campaign and will no doubt add many more, providing he stays arrest and injury free!
