Victor Moses guarantees West Ham United teammate Diafra Sakho will score goals this season

West Ham United striker Diafra Sakho has scored three goals in eight Premier League matches so far this season.

West Ham United new boy Victor Moses has told the club's official site of his belief that Diafra Sakho will score goals this season.

Sakho has netted three goals in eight Premier League matches to date this term, as the front-man has monopolised the number nine position in Slaven Bilic's starting line-up.

The French striker's power has made him a dangerous outlet for the Hammers, and Moses believes that he can continue to hit the back of the net with regularity for the rest of the campaign. 

“The quality of the players we have got in the forward line are definitely going to help us," the Chelsea loanee said.

“Sakho will get us goals and [Dimitri] Payet and [Manuel] Lanzini are quality. If you look at the quality they have it is unbelievable and they are good lads as well.

“We just want to keep working hard together as a team and keep scoring goals.”

Sakho has benefitted from the players that West Ham have brought in over the summer transfer window, as he has received an increased amount of service.

With the likes of Moses, Payet and Lanzini supplying him, Sakho has had a constant stream of chances throughout matches so far. 

He will need to keep up his good scoring record if he wants to continue to start up-front for the side though, as Andy Carroll and Enner Valencia are both heading back to full fitness. 

Sakho scored 12 goals in 26 appearances for the Hammers last term, which was his first season in English football.
