West Ham United supporters have been left disappointed with Diafra Sakho, after he missed a succession of good chances in their 1-0 defeat to Chelsea last night.
Sakho had a number of presentable opportunities, but failed to capitalise and his profligacy in front of goal has frustrated Hammers fans.
The Frenchman made a blistering start to his career at the Boleyn Ground, but his confidence appears low at the moment and his form has deteriorated.
Sakho has now scored just once in his last six games and it is the first tough patch he has experienced since moving to England.

Last night Sakho had seven attempts on goal, but he was not able to finish any of them off - with just three of his shots hitting the target.
It was a display which showed a lack of ruthlessness, but he can take solace in the fact that he is still getting in the right areas to break his goalscoring duck.
Whatever happens from here Sakho will still have had a good first season in England, with the striker claiming 11 goals in 22 matches, but if he can get back to his very best then West Ham will have a much better chance of ending their current slump in form.
Here is the best reaction from Hammers fans on social media site Twitter to Sakho's display.
Certainly deserved at least a point tonight. The clinical finishing from Sakho deserted him tonight. Nolan MOTM. Miss Carroll. #WHUFC— AllSportsView (@AllSportsView) March 4, 2015
Thought Kouyate, Collins and Nolan terrific and Downing gave Ivanovic a rare chasing second half. But Sakho? Miss after miss #WHUFC— Lee Clayton (@LeeClayton_) March 4, 2015
@WHUFC_News sorry but what was wrong with Valencia?? Did everything right. Sakho didn't take his chances. enner created and worked.— Charlie Donald (@chewly_donald) March 4, 2015
Hope Sakho takes his frustrations by scoring more. He wants to score every time & does his best to do so. Think it’s a mental issue. #WHUFC— ST-ST-ST-STAN (@stutterinstan) March 4, 2015
Finishing is a real worry at the moment. Just 4 goals in our last 6. Sakho and Valencia terrible today.— West Ham News (@WHUFC_News) March 4, 2015
