Diafra Sakho determined to help West Ham United maintain form

West Ham United striker Diafra Sakho is adamant that his side need to maintain their excellent run of form that has seen them break into the top four of the Premier League.

West Ham United striker Diafra Sakho is determined to keep his side's impressive start to the season going after the Hammers moved into the top four at the weekend.

Sam Allardyce's side beat reigning champions Manchester City 2-1 at Upton Park to secure their fourth win in five games, while Sakho continued his excellent form with his seventh goal in as many matches.

The striker told the club's official website: "The run goes on for all of us, the whole team. We know that after Saturday there's still a long, long way to go - as I always say - but we're trying to bag all the points that we can.

"We're trying to keep it going and that's really pleasing. My teammates on Saturday inspired me and so I dream big. When it ends, I'll accept that. But we're going to slog away to continue it.

"Saturday was great. To play at home in front of our fans, that spurs us all on to aim high and we'll carry on right until the end so that it will be the stuff of dreams for all the fans who came to watch us every week."

The Hammers are fourth in the Premier League with 16 points from their nine matches.
