West Ham United face a tough task of qualifying for the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night as they face London rivals Arsenal at the London Stadium - and fans want Diafra Sakho to start up front.

Manager David Moyes seems to be finally getting a reaction out of his players as the Hammers go unbeaten in their last three games, beating Chelsea and Stoke as well as drawing against Arsenal in the Premier League.

The east Londoners earned a comfortable 3-0 win over Mark Hughes' Stoke on Saturday, with 27-year-old Sakho scoring West Ham's third after Mark Noble and Marko Arnautovic had already found the back of the net.

Senegal international Sakho is in the final year of his contract with the Hammers which is reportedly worth £20,000 a week according to the Daily Star, but has hardly been given a chance to prove he is worthy of an extension.

Starting just two Carabao Cup games, his 14 Premier League appearances have all been from the bench but the former Metz attacker has still managed to score four goals in all competitions, as his speed and eye for goal remain a threat in England's top tier.

West Ham fans want to see their number 15 start against Arsenal, with one fan even claiming he "always looks dangerous".
